  • Implementation Grants provide Federal funds to implement projects and strategies identified in an Action Plan to address a roadway safety problem. Projects and strategies can be infrastructure, behavioral, and/or operational activities. 

Who is eligilible for funding?

  • Counties, cities, towns, transit agencies, and other special districts that are political subdivisions of a  State.
  • Metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs).
  • Federally recognized Tribal governments.
