IDOT's Bureau of Safety Programs and Engineering disseminates federal funds for local communities and state agencies to conduct highway safety counter-measures aimed at reducing highway crashes and resulting deaths, injuries, and property damage. Highway Safety Program Grants ("Section 402") are designed to help state agencies, counties, and communities initiate programs to address traffic safety related problems and generally to promote traffic safety on our roadways.
All grant projects, except state agency projects, run parallel with the federal fiscal year, October 1 through September 30. State agency projects run on the state fiscal year, July 1 through June 30. If you are interested in applying for a Highway Safety Grant, please visit the Traffic Safety Grants website.
