To receive reimbursement for transportation costs, please submit the application to request a date at one of the above locations. You may apply to more than one location, but you must complete and submit a separate request for each location. If one of the dates you requested is available you will receive a confirmation for a travel subsidized visit. Each school uses the transportation services selected by their school administration, and will be reimbursed for the cost when an invoice is provided. Funding is limited, and you must not contract with a transportation provider or expend any funds without confirmation for reimbursement first. All qualified applications are approved on a first-come/first-served basis.

Key dates:  Ongoing until funding is depleted

Location: Multiple

Registration deadline: Saturday, August 15 or until funding is depleted.
