On Friday, January 9th at 10:00 a.m. PST the Safe Routes to School National Partnership's California Network is hosting a free webinar: Safe Routes to School from a Tribal Perspective.
California is home to more people of Native American/ Alaska Native heritage than any other state in the Country. Nearly three quarters of a million people identify as Native American across the state. Changes to state funding make transportation projects, such as Safe Routes to School, possible for these communities.
SRTS from a Tribal Perspective will give an introduction to SRTS from a tribal perspective including new resources for tribes and an overview of California's primary funding program for Safe Routes to School, the Active Transportation Program. Successful case studies of programs in tribal communities as well as projects funded through the ATP will be presented.
