A row of kids giving thumbs up

We are now soliciting interest in Round 2 of the Ontario Active School Travel Fund.

Communities anywhere in Ontario who are looking to increase rates of walking and wheeling to school are encouraged to apply. Support is available to strengthen and expand existing active school travel initiatives, or to help get new initiatives underway, and will be granted to those projects that will have a significant and lasting impact.

The Ontario Active School Travel Fund is made possible through financial support from Green Communities Canada and the Government of Ontario.

The deadline for Round 2 applications is Friday 21 December 2018.

Round 1 of the Ontario Active School Travel Fund was conducted January-March 2018, with 12 projects selected to receive funding.
