- Sign up for Walk to School Day, Oct 4th 2017!
Walk Bike Nashville is now holding it's second SRTS Supply Grant contest for MNPS schools!
SRTS Supply Requests will provide up to $500 worth of equipment or supplies for schools that are interested in creating or strengthening the opportunity for students to get to school using active transportation. These requests are a great way to start up a Safe Routes to Schools program or expand your current program. Supplies and equipment will be purchased by Walk Bike Nashville using an item list created by the applicant.
Note that due to our funding constraints, all expenditure must taken place before October 31, 2017. Please apply early, and expect to provide detailed purchasing / expenditure information quickly if you are successful, to enable us to meet that deadline.
Complete details are provided at this link.
The application form is on-line, at this link.
Each school has some exciting new opportunities to commute by foot or wheel coming their way! Join our newsletter for updates on their progress and to learn of ways to get involved! And if you are interested in having us work with your school please contact us.
