The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO) receives funds annually from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to promote traffic safety initiatives within the State of Oklahoma.
The OHSO solicits applications for highway safety grant projects designed to combat the number and severity of traffic crashes by developing and supporting educational, enforcement, and engineering programs. These programs are keyed toward preventing fatalities and reducing injuries on Oklahoma's streets and highways.
In FY 2020, OHSO funded projects in the following categories:
Project proposals must identify which evidence-based strategies will be employed and what level of performance each strategy should expect to achieve.
Applications were to be submitted by February 25, 2020. The pre-application for FY22 grants (Oct. 1, 2021 - Sept. 30, 2022) will open in early December 2020.
Individual award amounts vary. Project periods will extend 12-months, starting October 1, 2020.
