Municipal Road Safety Grant Program

This grant program funds Massachusetts municipal police departments to support traditional enforcement activities and strengthen the development of new strategies to reduce roadway crashes, injuries, fatalities, and associated economic losses in Massachusetts.

Although people of all ages, races, ethnicities, and income levels are impacted by traffic fatalities, some communities or neighborhoods and the people residing within those areas may suffer more than others. Applicants are encouraged to explore existing or new data sources to better identify and understand the disproportionate impact of traffic crashes within their jurisdictions. A municipality should involve community stakeholders when developing their grant application and are encouraged to implement new programs to address issues of inequity in road safety.
