The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) published the List of Approved Projects for Cycle 10 SR2S funding on June 29. Out of 336 applications, 139 projects were selected for funding in Cycle 10. The approved project list can be found on the Caltrans website. According to Caltrans, $7 million of the $48.5 million was awarded in rural counties with $28 million awarded to projects that included at least one low-income school.
The SR2S program is the statewide Safe Routes to School program in California, and was the first of its kind in the country. The Caltrans Division of Local Assistance is tasked with allocating the SR2S funds to each Caltrans district based on student enrollment, and projects are reviewed at the district level by a Project Selection Committee. SR2S funds are allocated in one- or two-year cycles. Cycle 10 awards two years of SR2S funds.
