The National Complete Streets Coalition is pleased to announce its brand new Safe Streets Academy, a program designed to help jurisdictions transform their commitment to traffic safety into practice. The year-long Academy will bring together engineers, planners, and related professionals from three jurisdictions for an intensive, hands-on training on interventions to address traffic safety. The Academy will include three in-person workshops, one in each of the recipient jurisdictions. All members of the Academy will receive travel stipends to attend all of the trainings, with real-world examples based in each community. Between the in-person trainings, our staff will host distance-learning sessions with the Academy members to help them make steady progress toward their goals. This new opportunity is available at no cost to jurisdictions thanks to a Safe Systems Innovation Grant from the Road to Zero Coalition. Applications may be submitted until Sunday, July 16 at 11:59 PM EDT. Learn more about the grant here. There will be an overview of the Safe Streets Academy and the application process during an informational webinar on Friday, June 23, 2017 at 1:00 PM EDT.
