Based on feedback from Solano County cities and schools, the Solano SR2S Program launched the SR2S Micro-Grant Pilot Program in fiscal year 2019-2020 to fund small-scale bike and pedestrian projects and programs that encourage walking and biking and improve safety around schools.
The Pilot Program funded 14 projects in 2020, including radar feedback signs, bike and scooter racks, safety signage and equipment, high visibility crosswalk improvements, bike corral fencing and scooter storage, and walking and biking incentives. (See projects below).
Building on the program’s success, SR2S has secured $100,000 in funding for Cycle 2 of the Micro-Grant Program. Grants are available to Solano County cities, school districts, schools and community-based organizations. The application period opens June 1, 2021 and closes July 15, 2021 at 5 pm. For more information, contact Karin Bloesch, SR2S Senior Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 707-399-3217.
