| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

The Highway Safety Research Center has funding available for up to ten communities or neighborhoods to pilot test the use of "A Resident's Guide for Creating Safe and Walkable Communities", a newly developed guidebook that details ways to improve pedestrian safety and the walkability of local neighborhoods.

Each selected pilot site will be provided $2,000 as well as technical assistance from pedestrian safety experts.

Only government agencies and other not-for-profit organizations and neighborhood groups (e.g., PTAs, homeowner's associations, advocacy groups, etc.) are eligible to apply. Project funds will not be awarded to individuals.

The complete Request for Proposals is available at the program's Web site.
