Welcome to the QuickStart Mini-grant application form!

  • Increase the number of students walking and bicycling to school; and/or
  • Emphasize physical activity and health.
Mini-grant activities should occur within 90 days of award. Click here for additional information about eligible activities.

Schools may not benefit from more than one QuickStart Mini-grant per grant cycle. The fall grant cycle goes from August to October, and the spring grant cycle goes from February to April.  In addition, schools that have been included in a VDOT SRTS Non-Infrastructure Grant are not eligible for QuickStart Mini-grant during the non-infrastructure grant period.  
To complete the application, you will need a letter of support from the principals of each of the schools covered by this application.
