$10 million from the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) was set aside and exchanged for state funds to implement a new safety analysis program, the Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program (SSARP). The intent of the SSARP is to assist local agencies in performing collision analysis, identifying safety issues on their roadway network, and developing a list of systemic low-cost countermeasures that can be used to prepare future HSIP and other safety program applications. The goal of the SSARP is to help local agencies identify safety projects to submit for HSIP funding consideration. Through the funding of Systemic Safety Analysis Reports (SSAR), local agencies will be encouraged to evaluate their roadway networks with an approach that has been effective for addressing safety issues. Although not a prerequisite to applying for HSIP funds, the use of results documented in their SSAR will identify high benefit-cost ratio safety projects that have been found to be competitive in previous HSIP cycles.

The initiative provides grants to eligible entities to develop model deployment sites for large scale installation and operation of advanced transportation technologies to improve safety, efficiency, system performance, and infrastructure return on investment.  This notice is the first of annual solicitations for the ATCMTD program and seeks applications from eligible entities to establish the initial set of model technology deployment sites. The DOT intends for these model technology deployments to help demonstrate how emerging transportation technologies, data, and their applications, which also link to Beyond Traffic 2045, can be effectively deployed and integrated with existing systems to provide access to essential services and other destinations. This also includes efforts to increase connectivity to employment, education, services and other opportunities; support workforce development; and contribute to community revitalization, particularly for disadvantaged groups (e.g., low income groups, persons with visible or hidden disabilities, elderly individuals, and minority populations).

A total of $60 million is available, however, DOT will make no fewer than five and no more than 10 awards of up to $12 million each depending on the number of awards and amounts set aside for DOT administrative expenses.  The federal share of project costs for ATCMTD Grants is 50%, with the applicant providing a local share of 50% of the net project cost and documenting the source of the local match in the grant application.
