The state Department of Transportation will award $4 million to Ohio schools this year for projects designed to help children from kindergarten through eighth grade walk or bike to school safely.

The department will accept applications until March 3 for the Safe Routes to School Program.

Department Director Jerry Wray encourages every community that needs the program to apply.

The department is currently working with Toledo Public Schools, Akron Public Schools, and Columbus City Schools to determine ways of improving safety for students walking and bicycling to the districts’ schools.

Local and regional governments, schools and community organizations are eligible to apply for funding.
