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 $130,000 in funding for Cycle 2 of the Micro-Grant Program. On September 8, 2021 the STA Board approved funding for 16 projects.
