Grants to Idaho state and local government agencies and non-profits for programs designed to improve pedestrian and driving safety. February 12 is the mandatory deadline for Letters of Intent. Funding will be provided for new programs, to enhance existing programs, or identify and quantify highway safety problems.

Focus areas:

* Occupant Protection: The overall goal of the Occupant Protection Program is to eliminate death and serious injuries from motor vehicle crashes by increasing the proper use of seat belts, booster seats and child safety seats. Projects may include a combination of seat belt enforcement, public awareness programs, purchase of traffic enforcement equipment and creative education activities.

* Impaired Driving: The goal of this program area is to remove alcohol and drug‐impaired drivers from the road and reduce recidivism.

* Aggressive Driving: The goal of this program area is to eliminate the incidence of aggressive driving behaviors such as speeding, failing to yield, following too close or disregarding sign or signals. This goal is accomplished by enforcing and encouraging compliance with traffic laws through the development and implementation of Selective Traffic Enforcement Programs (STEP) crash reduction team model programs to address aggressive driver behavior and other similar projects which usually combine effective law enforcement and public awareness activities.

* Distracted Driving: The goal of this program is to eliminate distracted driving fatalities, serious injuries and economic loss from motor vehicle crashes.

* Youthful Divers: Funding is provided to eliminate the number of fatal and injury crashes by 15‐19 year old drivers. Emphasis is placed on prevention through education and enforcement activities. Grant funding is directed toward youthful drivers and pre‐teen drivers in grades K‐8. Agencies are encouraged to work with local teen community population groups such as impaired driving offenders, student governments, and other student organizations dedicated to increasing peer‐to‐peer education on traffic safety issues.

* Emergency Response: The goal of this program area is to enhance appropriate, timely and safe response to crashes and to reduce the time that it takes first responders to remove injured crash victims from the crash site and transport them to advanced medical treatment.

* Other: This category includes all other potential focus areas such as motorcycle, commercial vehicles, bicycle, pedestrian etc. The goal of any project in this category must be to eliminate roadway fatalities and injuries in Idaho.

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Highway safety funds, by law, cannot be used for highway construction, maintenance, or design. Requests for NHTSA grant funds are not appropriate for projects such as safety barriers, turning lanes, traffic signals and pavement/crosswalk markings.

Additionally, funds cannot be used for facility construction or purchase of office furniture. Because of limited funding, the OHS does not fund the purchase of vehicles.

Term of Contract:

October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016. Depending on the type of project, funding may be considered for one, two or at a maximum of three years.


Pre-Application Information:

Thursday, February 12, 2015, 11:59 PM MST: Letter of Intent deadline. Please understand all Letters of Intent must be submitted to OHS for the second or third year projects. Consideration is then given to new applicants that show the greatest potential for the elimination of serious injuries, fatalities or system improvement.

Matching funds requirement: For first year projects, grant money will generally reimburse seventy‐five (75) percent of the total costs, in the second year fifty (50) percent and in the third year twenty‐five (25) percent. Matching funds can be in the form of agency funds or resources to support the proposed project.

If your agency plans to participate in only the various high visibility law enforcement mobilizations of impaired driving, seat belts, aggressive driving and/or bike/pedestrian, the forms for the mobilization program will be sent in August 2014 and your agency does not need to complete the documents in the RFP.
