Planning & Demonstration Grants

Planning & Demonstration Grants provide federal funds to develop, complete, or supplement a comprehensive safety Action Plan.

The goal of an Action Plan is to develop a holistic, well-defined strategy to prevent roadway fatalities and serious injuries in a locality, tribe, or region.

Planning & Demonstration Grants also fund supplemental planning and/or demonstration activities that inform the development of an Action Plan.

Implementation Grants

Implementation Grants provide federal funds to implement projects and strategies identified in an Action Plan to address a roadway safety problem.

Projects/strategies can be infrastructure, behavioral, and/or operational activities.

Implementation Grants may also include demonstration activities, supplemental planning, and project-level planning, design, and development.
