FFY 2021 State Traffic Safety Information System Improvements Grant, Section 405(c) Funding
The Office of Grants and Research (OGR) is the State Administering Agency for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Section 405(c) grant funding received annually by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This grant opportunity's primary intent is to help states improve the performance attributes of core traffic safety information systems.
OGR is issuing this competitive AGF with an anticipated total award amount of $800,000.
OGR seeks to provide Section 405(c) funding available in FFY 2021 from NHTSA for projects to improve the accessibility, accuracy, completeness, integration, timeliness, and/or uniformity (performance attributes) of one or more of the following six core traffic record systems of the Commonwealth: citation/adjudication, crash, driver, injury surveillance/EMS, roadway, vehicle.
Improving these systems will enhance traffic record stakeholders' ability to conduct problem identification, develop and implement projects, and evaluate project impact of local, state, and federal traffic safety programs.
Permissible projects could also evaluate the effectiveness of efforts to improve these six systems; link with other appropriate state or federal data systems; improve compatibility and interoperability of state data systems with national systems and those in other states; and enhance an agency’s ability to observe and analyze national trends in crash occurrences, rates, outcomes, and circumstances.
Only units of state and local government, state higher educational institutions, or not-for-profit organizations in Massachusetts with a public purpose are eligible to apply for this funding. Private sector organizations are not eligible to receive this funding.
