Dear Planning Partners, 

Some exciting news! The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) established the new Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) discretionary program to provide $5-6 billion in grants over the next five years. Funding supports regional, local, and tribal initiatives through grants to prevent roadway deaths and serious injuries. The SS4A program supports the Department’s National Roadway Safety Strategy and a goal of zero deaths and serious injuries on our nation’s roadways.  Attached is a draft flyer with information on program goal, eligible applicants and activities, and funding availability.  A DOT department wide group led by the OST Office of Policy and FHWA is working on the grant program details. While States are not eligible to apply, qualified applicants can partner with States. The Department of Transportation expects to release the notice of funding opportunity in May of 2022 for Round 1 funding.  DOT is planning informational webinars soon and launching a dedicated web page. We will keep you informed of these events.

The size of the awards is not yet finalized, but it is likely to be significant.


There are several specific behavioral interventions noted: 

  • Address alcohol-impaired driving along key corridors through education, outreach, and publicized sobriety checkpoints on weekends and holidays.
  • Street design changes informed by culturally competent education and community outreach.
  • Creating safe routes to school and public transit services through multiple activities that lead to people safely walking, biking, and rolling in underserved communities. 

But it is not limited to these concepts so no need to be overly restrictive.

What can you do now?

 Send this email and flyer to contacts at:

·        Cities

·        Counties

·        Towns

·        Metropolitan Planning Organizations (Vision Zero groups, etc.)

·        Tribal Governments

  1. Develop partnerships to apply for funding (States can be a part of the partnership)
  2. Encourage partners to
    • Develop ideas and concepts towards:

                                                               i.      planning grant (developing an action plan)

                                                             ii.      implementation grant with hard outcomes

    • Think big – this is not likely to be a micro-grant and may be fulfilled by broad and diverse partnerships fulfilling large strategic goals
    • Tee up questions – we expect many

 

Many thanks!

 

Joe
