Grant Description
Grants of up to $40,000 to New York nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and tribal organizations for programs to address child safety in motor vehicles. Nonprofit applicants must complete required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to support local communities by providing funding to conduct programs that promote child passenger safety awareness and education.

These grants will continue to support the educational activities of child passenger safety programs through the four different initiatives or schedules: fitting stations, awareness trainings, car seat check events, and car seat education & distribution programs for low-income families.

Please note: In Federal Fiscal Year 2024 there will be funding available for the purchase of a limited number of car seats/child restraints for use with Schedule A – Permanent Fitting Stations, Schedule C – Car Seat Check Events and Schedule D-Car Seat Education & Distribution Programs. 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, preestablished guidelines need to be followed before providing a replacement seat. Funds will also be available for the purchase of a limited number of car seats for use with Schedule D – Car Seat Education & 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.
