Join Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) and successful 2022 Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) applicants to learn how to make your FY2023 application stand out to USDOT. At this webinar, we discussed 2023 applications, which are due July 10th, as well as future SS4A funding cycles and other safety-focused programs such as the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). While focusing on how to create a successful application, this webinar also addressed the importance of including traffic-separated bike and pedestrian routes as an important component to decreasing fatalities and injuries among vulnerable road users.

During this session, Betty, Will, and Aaron walked through the SS4A application process, discussed why trails and active transportation were important components of their projects and highlighted elements of their applications that made them successful in the FY2022 funding round.
