Highway Safety Grants

Highway Safety and Traffic Division is responsible for administration of the following grant programs:  State and Community Highway Safety and Motor Carrier Safety Assistance.

The State and Community Highway Safety Grant Program supports programs that reduce the number and severity of traffic crashes occurring on Missouri roadways and reduce traffic fatalities and injuries.  Areas of emphasis include alcohol- and/or drug–impaired driving, speeding, safety belt and child safety seat use, inattention or distracted driving, young drivers, mature drivers, and traffic crash data collection and analysis. The grant funding cycle corresponds with the federal fiscal year, which runs from October 1 through September 30. 

The Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP) supports programs that reduce the number and severity of traffic crashes involving a commercial motor vehicle.  Areas of emphasis include alcohol- and drug–impaired driving, speeding, safety belt, inattention or distracted driving, weight, size, inspection compliance, and drug interdiction. The grant funding cycle corresponds with the state fiscal year, which runs from July 1 through June 30.  (Applications are not submitted via the Highway Safety Grants Management System like the State and Community Highway Safety Grant Program but rather are submitted directly to the MCSAP Coordinator within the Highway Safety Division Office, but contracts are created and managed in the Highway Safety Grants Management System.)

Qualifying applicants shall submit their program proposal on MoDOT's standard application form, which is available by logging on to the Highway Safety Grants Management System below. For additional information or to obtain a user ID and password please call 800-800-2358.
