City reapplies for a ‘safe routes’ grant

Email News Alerts

The city of Perham is making another attempt to secure grant funding for some Safe Routes to School improvements.

After a grant application submitted last year failed to produce funding, city councilors agreed at a meeting Monday to repackage the application and try again this year.


The grant application requests funding from two possible sources: Safe Routes to School (SRTS) and Transportation Alternatives Projects (TAP).
