The National Road Safety Foundation partners with GHSA (Governors Highway Safety Association) to support innovative state approaches that address the pressing issues of road safety through a competitive grant program. Grantee efforts have included projects targeting drowsy driving and speeding with public awareness campaigns and full comprehensive programs, which include engineering, education, enforcement, EMS and policy countermeasures.
Youth Active Transportation Safety (Micromobility)
The Governors Highway Safety Association has awarded grants totaling $75,000 from the National Road Safety Foundation to State Highway Safety Offices in Connecticut, New York and Pennsylvania to work with community-based groups to promote safe youth mobility options like walking, biking or riding a scooter.
These new grants will provide resources for community outreach and engagement efforts to make it safer for youth and teens to walk, bike or ride a scooter. In Erie County, Pa., the funding will be used to implement or expand local programs that create safe walking routes to schools. A grant in Hartford, Conn., will be used to recruit and train youth ambassadors to educate their peers about bicycle and pedestrian safety. In New York City, the funding will provide peer-to-peer outreach promoting pedestrian, bicycle and scooter safety.
The National Road Safety Foundation, Inc. (NRSF) and the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) are pleased to invite State Highway Safety Offices to apply for grants to implement drowsy driving prevention programs and campaigns.
With nearly 800 people killed on U.S. roads every month in speed-related crashes, the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) are launching a partnership to support a new kind of state program to reduce the toll.
GHSA and IIHS are working with the National Road Safety Foundation (NRSF) to award one or more grants in 2020 to develop and implement a speed-management pilot program. State agencies will be eligible to compete for the grant by proposing an interdisciplinary, community-based program that combines proven and innovative countermeasures from the areas of engineering, high-visibility enforcement, communications, advocacy and policy.
