Infrastructure Program - 4th Funding Cycle Infrastructure Awards Announced

Solicitation Process for Funding Cycle 4
Safe Routes To Schools (SRTS) Infrastucture Program solicitations started March 14, 2011 by the Connecticut Department of Transportation for the Federal Fiscal Years 2010 - 2011. Approximately $3 million was available. Applications were due to Regional Planning Organization (RPOs) for preliminary review by August 1, 2011.  Application solicitation period is now closed.

The Process after Funding Award
Since the Safe Routes to School Program is a federal-aid program, projects awarded through this program to local municipalities are administered through the Department of Transportation's Consultant Design - Local Roads Office. The following link, An introduction to Locally Administered Projects, gives an overview of the federal-aid program process:
