The Road to Zero Coalition’s 2018 Safe System Innovation Grants cycle is now open until the end of January. Grants will be awarded in the spring. We are eager to advance the deployment of our Proven Safety Countermeasures, targeting local and rural roads through this grant program. State DOTs, local and municipal transportation agencies and others are eligible to apply.

We need your help in getting the word out about the grants. These grants provide an excellent opportunity for locals to implement the activities and treatments listed in our suite of Proven Safety Countermeasures. Below is information that can be used promote the RTZ Grants.

  • Proposed projects that link behavioral, roadway and/or vehicle elements will be given special consideration (e.g., incorporating roadway or vehicle strategies to change safety behaviors).

  • There is no limit on the number of grant proposals an organization can submit.
