PLEASE NOTE: This program is not currently accepting applications for funding.

The Office of Grants and Research is the State Administering Agency for traffic safety grants provided by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This grant program makes federal funds available to provide police departments substantial flexibility in addressing local traffic safety issues, allowing funding beyond enforcement to include equipment options and developing novel traffic-safety programs. The goal is to support traditional enforcement activities and develop new strategies to reduce roadway crashes, injuries, fatalities, and associated economic losses in Massachusetts.

Funds will be awarded competitively to eligible local police departments in Massachusetts.

This program is made available through federal funding.


Only Massachusetts municipal police departments are eligible to apply.
