Agency Readies $44 Million in Highway Safety Grants

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration today asked for applications for as much as $44 million in Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program High Priority and New Entrant grants, although exactly how much money the agency can award depends on getting a FY2008 appropriations bill passed and signed into law.

Applications submitted by Jan. 5, 2008, will be considered, with those submitted afterward considered on a case-by-case if money is available. The application is posted at www.grants.gov/applicants/apply_for_grants.jsp (CFDA No. 20.218). Contact Jack Kostelnik of FMCSA's Office of Safety Programs at 202-366-5721 for information.

Expected funding for MCSAP is $202 million in FY2008, including up to $15 million for High Priority grants and up to $29 million for New Entrant Safety Audits. High Priority funds are available for activities conducted by state agencies, local governments, and organizations representing government agencies that use and train qualified officers and employees in coordination with state motor vehicle safety agencies. FMCSA said it will reserve $5 million in FY2008 High Priority funding exclusively for traffic enforcement projects, with particular emphasis on work zone enforcement.
