Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA state and territory government agencies for programs to address road safety for commercial motor vehicles. Funding is intended to support a range of grant programs that reduce road accidents, fatalities and injuries, and hazardous materials incidents involving commercial motor vehicles.

The FAST Act consolidated several previously stand-alone FMCSA grant programs. The MCSAP grant now includes Basic and Incentive, New Entrant (safety program required by the FAST Act to be conducted by States for New Entrant safety audits on interstate motor carriers and intrastate motor carriers, at the State's discretion), Border Enforcement (safety program conducted by States for border CMV safety projects and activities focused on international commerce) and components of other consolidated grant programs:

  • Safety Data Improvement - provides financial and technical assistance to States to facilitate the collection of accurate, complete, and timely data on all large commercial truck and bus crashes that involve a fatality, injury, or a vehicle towed from the crash scene.
  • Innovative Technology Deployment (ITD) (Operations & Maintenance Only) - advances the technological capability and promotes the deployment of intelligent transportation system applications for CMV operations and supports and maintains CMV informations systems and networks; and
  • Performance and Registration Information Systems Management (PRISM) - cooperative Federal/State public safety program that links carrier safety fitness to State vehicle registration process.
  • Additionally, funding for some provisions of ITD and PRISM are available through the High Priority grant program.  See the MCSAP Comprehensive Policy (MCP) for additional information regarding funding eligibility.
