Grants to state agencies, universities, city/county courts, and non-profit organizations in Mississippi that participate in the State's program to promote traffic safety. The purpose of these grants is to provide financial assistance to stimulate the development of traffic and highway safety projects or programs at the state and local levels. Funding will be provided for the following program areas:

1. Alcohol Impaired Driving Countermeasures - These funds can be used to adopt and implement effective programs to reduce traffic safety problems resulting from individuals driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs including impaired motorcycle operators. These grant funds may be used to implement checkpoints and saturation patrols aimed at impaired drivers, prosecution and adjudication outreach, improving BAC collection and testing, and underage drinking programs, as well as the cost for high visibility enforcement and the costs of training and equipment (no radars); and the costs of educational campaigns that publicize checkpoints, saturation patrols or other law enforcement traffic maneuvers.

2. General (includes Police Traffic Services, Traffic Records, Alcohol, Occupant Protection, Speed, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), etc.) – These funds may be used for highway safety purposes to address local traffic safety problems. These funds can be used to implement any program in the national priority program areas to directly impact fatal and injury crashes. Program areas include all aspects of traffic enforcement, public education, equipment, training and outreach.

3. Occupant Protection (OP) - These funds can be used to adopt and implement effective programs to reduce deaths and injuries from riding unrestrained or improperly restrained in motor vehicles. These grant funds can only be used to implement and enforce occupant protection programs, such as Click It or Ticket (CIOT).

4. Traffic Records (TR) – These funds can be used to adopt and implement effective programs to improve the timeliness, accuracy, completeness, uniformity, integration, and accessibility of State data that is needed to identify priorities for national, State, and local highway & traffic safety programs; to evaluate the effectiveness of efforts to make such improvements; to link these State data systems, including traffic records, with other data systems within the State; and to improve the compatibility of the State data system with national data systems and data systems of other States to enhance the ability to observe and analyze national trends in crash occurrences, rates, outcomes, and circumstances.

5. Alcohol Countermeasures (AL) - These funds can be used for alcohol impaired driving programs to adopt and implement effective programs to reduce traffic safety problems resulting from individuals driving while under the influence of alcohol including impaired motorcycle operators. Funds may be used to implement checkpoints and saturation patrols aimed at impaired drivers, prosecution and adjudication outreach, improving BAC collection and testing and underage drinking programs, as well as costs for high visibility enforcement; the costs of training and equipment; and the costs of educational campaigns that publicize checkpoints, saturation patrols or other law enforcement traffic maneuvers. These funds are strictly for alcohol-only related activity programs.

6. Motorcycle Safety – These funds can be used only for motorcyclist safety training and motorcyclist awareness programs, including improvement of training curricula, delivery of training, recruitment or retention of motorcyclist safety instructors, and public awareness and outreach programs.
