Since the Capital Coexist Traffic Safety Ambassador Program launched in 2016, over $70,000 in bicycle and pedestrian safety projects and programs have been completed. The program is open to local governments, certified first responders, 501(c)3 non-profits, and for-profit organizations. Proposed projects or programs can request up to $5,000 for Safe Routes to School projects, slow down campaigns, helmet giveaways, pop-up events and demonstration projects, and bicycle skills training.
The mini-grant will cover up to 75% of the proposed project or program costs. CDTC is currently accepting applications by email until January 31, 2018 and all projects must be completed by the end of next year. To learn about the program guidelines and eligibility, see the documents below.
