2023 SS4A Awards
Round 1 FY23 Awards Announced
On Oct. 27, 2023, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced 235 fiscal year (FY) 2023 Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) grant awards totaling $82 million to local communities.
These planning and demonstration projects help the nation’s cities, counties, metropolitan planning organizations, and Tribal governments better understand the safety challenges in their communities, and then begin to identify solutions to make our streets, roads, and highways safer for all road users.
This is the first of two FY23 announcements for the Safe Streets and Roads for All competitive grant program and includes only Planning and Demonstration Grants, which are shown in the below interactive map.

These funds will help with everything from developing safety action plans, to informing improvements along corridors with safety issues, to using “quick-build” strategies to test out safety features such as separated bicycle lanes or curb extensions at intersections.
Additional FY23 Awards to Be Announced in December
Another round of FY23 SS4A awards is expected to be announced in December and will include additional Planning and Demonstration Grants and Implementation Grants, which provide federal funds to implement projects and strategies identified in an Action Plan to address a roadway safety problem.
In total, the SS4A grants are expected to provide hundreds of millions of dollars in funding investments in roadway safety, provided directly to local communities.

In the first year of the program, DOT awarded $800 million in grants to 511 communities, making SS4A one of the Department’s largest competitive programs in terms of discreet awardees.
