NC Highway Safety is issuing Grants to improve State Motor Fatalities
The N.C. Governor’s Highway Safety Program has awarded more than $20 million in grants to local and state transportation initiatives that will help make North Carolina roads safer.
The Governor’s Highway Safety Program will administer 106 community-based grants during the upcoming federal fiscal year, which runs from this month through September 2023. Grants are administered to a variety of initiatives targeting key traffic safety areas such as impaired driving, speeding, occupant protection, pedestrians and cyclists, motorcyclists, and teen and senior drivers. Grant recipients include local and state law enforcement agencies, nonprofit organizations, courts and state departments. Many of these grants are used as “seed money” to get programs started. In most cases, the grantee provides a portion of the project costs and is expected to continue the program after GHSP funding ends. For more information on these grants visit www.NCDOT.gov.
