USDOT Opens a NOFO for its Safe Streets for All Program (SS4A)


The USDOT has opened a call for applications for the $1.256 billion Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) program. SS4A was created in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act to help communities both plan and carry out projects that help reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries on our highways, streets, and roads. SS4A funds will help communities in the development of road safety action plans and improve unsafe roadway corridors by implementing effective interventions. Additionally, these funds can be utilized to test out safety features such as separated bicycle lanes or curb extensions at intersections. View the SS4A Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). Applications for Implementation Grants are due by May 16. Planning and Demonstration Grants have three application deadlines: April 4, May 16, and August 29.

As indicated in the NOFO, SS4A requires an eligible Action Plan to be in place before applying to implement projects and strategies. The New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) has a regional Safety Action Plan in place – an addendum to the Regional Transportation Plan which guides federal transportation funding - which local municipalities within NYMTC’s planning area can use for this purpose. View the Safety Action Plan.

Any questions should be directed to Sherry Southe, NYMTC’s Safety Coordinator, at
