USDOT Grants for Roadway Safety - Due Sept. 15

The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) offers grants for local government agencies, tribes, and metropolitan planning organizations for activities to improve roadway safety and prevent death and serious injuries.

Registration may take several weeks to complete. Funding is to support planning, infrastructure, behavioral, and operational initiatives to mitigate fatalities and injuries on roads and streets involving all road users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation, motorists, commercial vehicle operators, and personal conveyance and micromobility users.

The SS4A program supports the National Roadway Safety Strategy and the USDOT's goal of zero deaths and serious injuries on our nation's roads. The program provides funding to develop the tools to help strengthen a community's approach to roadway safety and save lives.
