The Monthly SRTS Program Tracking Brief is prepared by the National Center for Safe Routes to School to provide information about State SRTS programs. Each month, a different snapshot and brief analysis of one key trend across all State programs is presented. It also provides a tracking table summarizing key attributes from all programs.
As of November 1, 2006, 23 State Safe Routes to School Programs (45%) are in the process of receiving and considering applications to fund local programs, or have completed their first application process and made awards to local programs. An additional 23 states (45%) are developing their application processes or preparing their applications for release. The National Center for Safe Routes to School considers these numbers to be another indicator of the impressive progress and potential in the development and implementation of the national SRTS program.
