The Department of Transporation is hosting several information sessions in May and June 2023 on the Safe Streets program. A list of these sessions can be found here.
The purpose of SS4A grants is to improve roadway safety by significantly reducing or eliminating roadway fatalities and serious injuries through safety action plan development and refinement and implementation focused on all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation users, motorists, personal conveyance and micromobility users, and commercial vehicle operators. The program provides funding to develop the tools to help strengthen a community’s approach to roadway safety and save lives and is designed to meet the needs of diverse local, Tribal, and regional communities that differ dramatically in size, location, and experience administering Federal funding.
The following activities are eligible for the SS4A program:
- Develop or update a comprehensive safety action plan (Action Plan). This includes Developing an Action Plan, Conducting supplemental planning in support of an Action Plan, and Carrying out demonstration activities in support of an Action Plan.
- Conducting planning, design, and development activities for projects and strategies identified in an Action Plan.
- Carry out projects and strategies identified in an Action Plan.
The SS4A program provides funding for two main types of grants: Planning and Demonstration Grants for comprehensive safety action plans, including supplemental safety planning, and/or safety demonstration activities; and Implementation Grants. Planning and Demonstration Grants are used to develop, complete, or supplement a comprehensive safety action plan, as well as carry out demonstration activities that inform an Action Plan. Implementation Grants are used to implement strategies or projects that are consistent with an existing Action Plan and may also bundle funding requests for supplemental planning and demonstration activities that inform an Action Plan.
