Grants to New York nonprofit organizations, tribal organizations, and government agencies to increase the safety of child passengers through educational programming. Nonprofit applicants must pre-qualify in the online grants system prior to applying. Funding is intended to support the educational activities of child passenger safety programs through four initiatives: fitting stations, training and education programs, child passenger safety check events, and car seat distribution programs for low-income families.
In Federal Fiscal Year 2020 there will be funding available for the purchase of a limited number of child safety seats for use with Schedule A – Permanent Fitting Stations and Schedule C – Car Seat Check Events. Schedules A and C will require hands-on education pertaining to the proper use and installation of a car seat. In the event it is determined a car seat needs to be replaced, pre-established guidelines need to be followed and a misuse form completed and given to the parent/caregiver.
Funds will also be available for the purchase of a limited number of child safety seats for use with Schedule D – Child Safety Seat Distribution Programs. Schedule D will require the verification of low income status as well as in classroom instruction about child restraint systems and hands-on education pertaining to the proper use and installation of car seats.
