The Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO) receives funds annually from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to promote traffic safety initiatives within the State of Oklahoma. The OHSO solicits applications for highway safety grant projects designed to combat the number and severity of traffic crashes by developing and supporting educational, enforcement, and engineering programs (OHSO Mission). These programs are keyed toward preventing fatalities and reducing injuries on Oklahoma's streets and highways. The contract period coincides with the Federal Fiscal Year, which runs from October 1 through September 30. All grant applications must contain sufficient documentation to determine the project goal, description, cost, and evaluation benchmarks. The project goal(s) must be consistent with the OHSO statewide goals as set forth in the application.
Applications should be submitted directly to the Highway Safety Office. Applications for the next fiscal year must be received by February 28 of the current fiscal year. There will be a new application process that will be offered online using a new system. More details coming soon.
The grant application review process normally takes place during the months of April and May. All grant applications received are reviewed for content, quality and timeliness. Since the amount of monies available is limited and may vary from year to year, not all applications received will be selected for funding. Applicants will be notified by mail of their selection or non-selection.
Applications for FY 2014 will be accepted from February 4, 2013 through February 28, 2013.
