How to Leverage New Funding for Safety: Tips to Make the Most of SS4A Grants

by Leah Shahum | June 30, 2022 | in News, Webinars

Vision Zero is more than a goal, more than a tagline, more than even just a program. It is a fundamental shift in how we approach roadway safety.

Thanks to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) commitment to zero roadway deaths nationally and its shift to a Safe System approach, which underpins Vision Zero, we are seeing stepped-up policy and funding commitments to help communities prioritize safety.

We want to help your community leverage these important funding opportunities to advance Vision Zero, starting with the USDOT’s new Safe Streets and Roads (SS4A) grant program. Note that the deadline is September 15, 2022.

*** Note that these are not official grant resources. For critical information and full details about the SS4A grant program, see the USDOT’s official (& super-informative) website.
