FFY 2023 State Traffic Safety Information System Improvements Grant, Section 405(c) funding, Availability of Grant Funds (AGF)
The Office of Grants and Research (OGR) is the State Administering Agency for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Section 405(c) grant funding received annually by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

- Make measurable improvements to performance attributes (accessibility, accuracy, completeness, integration, timeliness, or uniformity) of state safety data systems (citation/adjudication, crash, driver, EMS/injury surveillance, roadway, or vehicle) that will assist with identifying priorities for federal, state, and local traffic safety programs;
- Evaluate the effectiveness of such efforts;
- Link state data systems, including traffic records and relevant data systems;
- Improve the compatibility and interoperability of state data systems with national data systems and the data systems of other states; and
- Enhance the state’s ability to observe and analyze national trends in crash occurrences, rates, outcomes, and circumstances.
OGR is issuing this competitive AGF to make multiple grant awards totaling up to $1,400,000 in FFY 2023.
Only units of state and local government, state higher educational institutions, or not-for-profit organizations with a public purpose in Massachusetts are eligible to apply for this funding. Private sector organizations are not eligible to receive this funding.
