Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Grant Program is Now Accepting Applications

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law established the new Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) discretionary program with $5 billion in appropriated funds over 5 years. The SS4A program funds regional, local, and Tribal initiatives through grants to prevent roadway deaths and serious injuries.

Funds for the fiscal year 2024 SS4A grant program are to be awarded on a competitive basis to support planning, infrastructural, behavioral, and operational initiatives to prevent death and serious injury on roads and streets involving all roadway users, including pedestrians; bicyclists; public transportation, personal conveyance, and micromobility users; motorists; and commercial vehicle operators.  The SS4A program supports USDOT’s National Roadway Safety Strategy and the Department’s goal of significantly reducing serious injuries and deaths on our Nation’s roadways.

With the latest award announcement in December 2023, SS4A has provided $1.7 billion in Federal funding to over 1,000 communities in all 50 States and Puerto Rico.

The FY 2024 SS4A Notice of Funding Opportunity has multiple application deadlines, depending on the grant type. Implementation Grant applications have a single deadline of May 16, 2024 by 5 PM ET for FY24. Planning and Demonstration Grant applicants have three deadlines for FY24: April 4, 2024, by 5 PM ET; May 16, 2024, by 5 PM ET; and August 29, 2024, by 5 PM ET. Following each deadline, USDOT will review Planning and Demonstration Grant applications received to date. Each eligible applicant can receive only one award for the FY24 NOFO. Local governments, tribes, and MPOs are eligible to apply for grants.
