Early January Deadline Approaching for Community Traffic Safety Grants

In This Article:

Transportation practitioners may be interested in applying for the National Safety Council’s 2023 Road to Zero Community Traffic Safety Grants Program. The nearing deadline for applications is January 6th at 5pm ET.

The Road to Zero Coalition began in 2016 as a partnership between USDOT and the NSC, with funding from USDOT’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The coalition includes over 1,800 member organizations (listed here), with the goal of ending roadway fatalities in the United States by 2050. It incorporates three pillars into its multi-modal framework, prioritizing evidence-based strategies, life-saving technological advancements, and promoting a Safe System approach and culture of safety in transportation.

Applicants must be members of the Road to Zero Coalition, classified as a non-profit, government, or tribal entity. Proposed projects should offer innovative approaches that could be generalizable elsewhere or research that builds understanding in traffic safety. Grantees are expected to thoroughly document their work and expenses, submitting monthly invoices and holding quarterly meetings prior to their final report. The requested amount must be between $50,000 and $200,000, with the program dispensing $750,000 overall.
