Office of Traffic Safety Awarded Us a Grant for Safer Streets!
The Health Policy and Planning program and the County Office of Education have recently been awarded $100,000 Office of Traffic Safety grant for the 2018-2019 school year! These funds will be used to bring education and encouragement funds to some of the schools identified in our report, Creating Safer Streets Near Schools. These education and encouragement initiatives will include outreach events with vendors, such as Safetyville, Rock the Block, and events through the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition. We will also be partnering with community events to bring these opportunities to the wider community where these priority schools are located. These education and encouragement funds will complement our work with cities for infrastructure improvements around the identified schools and help strengthen the relationships between cities and schools.
