Applications are invited by 6 January 2023 for the latest round of US-based Road to Zero Community Traffic Safety Grants which will disperse USD$750,000 per year for projects, programmes and research that put the Road to Zero strategy into practice and help achieve NHTSA’s mission of zero traffic deaths.

Launched in 2016 as a partnership between the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Safety Council, the Road to Zero Coalition has the goal of ending fatalities on our nation’s roads by 2050. Tens of thousands of people die on U.S. roads each year, with historic increases and growing number of deaths for people walking and biking. To address this devastating trend, the Road to Zero Coalition, made up of over 1,800 member organizations, brings together a cross-sector approach to implementing proven techniques, sharing important research and information, and advancing the conversation around transportation safety through its three pillar, multi-modal framework focused on:

  • Doubling down on what works through proven, evidence-based strategies
  • Advancing life-saving technology in vehicles and infrastructure
  • Prioritizing safety by adopting a Safe System approach and creating a positive safety culture

The application deadline is January 6, 2023 at 5pm Eastern.

Grants can be used to kick-start new initiatives or grow existing efforts. Get more information on the funding available, including eligibility requirements and instructions for starting an application HERE.
