Background
MPS Culinary & Wellness Services was selected for funding through the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s (MnDOT) recent SRTS solicitation. The $50,000.00 grant will be awarded with State Safe Routes to School Funds (per MN Statute 174.40). MnDOT requires a board resolution signed by the governing body of all awardees in order to enter into a contract agreement. This grant aligns with MPS priorities identified in the MPS SRTS Action plan as well as those in Green Central’s SRTS Plan. The funding will provide for Green Central: New Bike Fleet and storage, Bethune: New bikes to add to existing bike fleet, Emerson: An international teaching assistant who will develop a culturally relevant Safe Routes to School program at the school, and Universal Bike Education for fourth and fifth grade students: equipment and other support.
 
During engagement around the 2017 MPS SRTS Strategic Action Plan, MPS SRTS solicited feedback from diverse stakeholders to better understand the issues that students, especially students of color, face around walking and biking to school. This process resulted in the MPS SRTS Strategic Action Plan, which identified five priority actions for Safe Routes to School in MPS. Richard Green Central Park completed Safe Routes to School planning in the 2020-2021 school year.

Work will begin April 2022 and be completed by June 30, 2023
