HIGHWAY SAFETY GRANT PROGRAMS: SECTION 402 - STATE AND COMMUNITY HIGHWAY SAFETY GRANT PROGRAM

The State and Community Highway Safety Grant Program was enacted by the Highway Safety Act of 1966 as Section 402 of Title 23, United States Code. Grant funds are provided to the States, the Indian Nations and the Territories each year according to a statutory formula, based on population and road mileage. The grants support State planning to identify and quantify highway safety problems, provide startup or "seed" money for new programs, and give new direction to existing safety programs. These funds are intended to catalyze innovative programs at the State and local level and leverage commitments of State, local, and private resources. The Section 402 grant process has been successful in directing resources to national and State priority safety programs. This brochure answers the following questions concerning Section 402: What programs does Section 402 fund? How is the program implemented? How does a State apply for a Section 402 grant?
