Apply by Sept. 15 for FY22 Safe Streets and Roads for All grants

The submission deadline for fiscal year 2022 grants for the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) program is Sept. 15 by 5 p.m. 

Applications must be submitted through Grants.gov. Details are available on the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) with additional resources available at the SS4A website.

The SS4A website provides general program information, fact sheets, a “How to Apply” page, answers to frequently asked questions, and webinar presentations and recordings.

Groups eligible to apply for the grants include metropolitan planning organizations; counties, cities, towns, transit agencies or special districts within a state; federally recognized tribal governments; and multijurisdictional groups comprised of these groups.

Activities that are eligible include developing or updating a comprehensive safety action plan; conducting planning, design and development activities in support of an action plan; and carrying out projects and strategies identified in an action plan. A list of example activities is available.

In May, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) released its NOFO for the newly created Safe Streets and Roads for All Program, a $5 billion grant program focused on local vision zero projects which was created in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). The grant is funded at $1 billion annually through Fiscal Year 2026.
