FY24 Safe Streets and Roads for All NOFO Now Open

Created by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) next round of funding is now open for applications. The SS4A program is to support efforts at the regional and local levels to prevent roadway deaths and serious injuries. The IIJA provides $5-$6 billion in grants over five years with a little over $1.2 billion available in FY24 funding. The Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) opened recently and has multiple deadlines depending on the grant type.

  • Implementation Grant applications have a deadline of 5PM ET on May 16, 2024.
  • Planning and Demonstration Grant applications have three deadlines (5PM ET on April 4, 2024; 5PM ET on May 16, 2024; 5PM ET on August 29, 2024). DOT will review applications received to date after each deadline, this does not provide an opportunity for any applicant to receive three awards. Each eligible applicant can only receive one award for the current round of funding.

SS4A grants aim to improve roadway safety by supporting communities in developing comprehensive safety action plans and implementing projects and strategies that significantly reduce or eliminate transportation-related fatalities and serious injuries involving pedestrians; bicyclists; public transportation, personal conveyance, and micromobility users; commercial vehicle operators; and motorists. Eligible applicants include (among others) Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), counties, cities, and towns.
