$23.9 million is up for grabs to municipalities in New York who apply for a federal grant through the state’s Department of Transportation. The money is earmarked for efforts designed to improve safety in school zones and along paths where children will be traveling to get to and from their educational institution. The Safe Routes to School funding will be bestowed upon areas that pledge to make improvements to sidewalks, bike paths, crosswalks, and more within two miles of a school. Education campaigns are also eligible for the funding.
