Slow program implementation by states and incomplete, inconsistent, and often unavailable data has created a hurdle for arriving at conclusive recommendations at this stage. It is important, however, to move forward with TAP competitions and award cycles, and adhere to best practice to ensure Safe Routes to School projects are competitive under TAP.
About the Study:
This report looks at how states adapted to changes made to the federal Safe Routes to School program under TAP. Interviews were conducted with 10 state Department of Transportation coordinators to gather information about their TAP implementation decisions affecting Safe Routes to School funding.
