Grants

Introduction

The GHSP grant program is structured on the federal fiscal year, which runs from October 1st to September 30th. The following is an overview of the grant process, timeline, and other requirements related to grant program funding.

Applying For A Highway Safety Grant

Who May Apply

State agencies, political subdivisions of the state, such as counties, towns, villages, or not-for-profit organizations that have oversight for highway safety or serve a population that is in need of highway safety program services that could be delivered by the applicant may apply. The GHSP does not fund for-profit agencies.

GHSP's grant funding policy is based on governing statutes, regulations and directives, and many of these supporting documents are contained in the Highway Safety Grant Management Manual.

To be allowable, costs must  be necessary, reasonable, allocable, and Federal funds must be used in accordance with the appropriate statute and implementing grant regulations or guidance. Grant management rules require governmental units to monitor sub-awards to assure compliance with applicable Federal requirements and cost principles.

For general criteria for allowable costs, please see

  • Part I. Basic Funding Guidance
  • Part II. Allowable Costs Under Specific Conditions for Selected Items
  • Part III. Unallowable Costs for Selected Items.
