The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration announced it is now accepting applications for the second round of funding under the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) grant program. This program was created under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to support local initiatives to prevent transportation-related death and serious injury on roads and streets. Up to $1.18 billion is available for FY2023 grants.
Townships are eligible to apply now through Monday, July 10, for projects supporting planning, infrastructure, behavioral, and operational initiatives to prevent death and serious injury on roads and streets involving all roadway users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation users, motorists, and commercial vehicle operators.
The SS4A program provides funding for two main types of grants:
- Planning and Demonstration Grants to develop, complete, or supplement a comprehensive safety action plan, as well as carry out activities that inform an Action Plan.
- Implementation Grants to implement strategies or projects that are consistent with an existing Action Plan.
