Communities with High Fatality Rates

The Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) includes a new Planning and Demonstration Grant award selection consideration for applicants that have a fatality rate of 17.0 fatalities per 100,000 persons or greater. The goal of this consideration is to ensure that communities with higher fatality rates are prioritized for planning and demonstration activities.  

This linked document is a non-exhaustive list of communities that meet this award consideration based on 2017-2021 Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) crash data and 2020 American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year estimates for counties and cities. The document identifies counties with a population over 50,000 and cities with a population over 5,000 only; any other eligible applicant with a fatality rate of 17.0 fatalities per 100,00 persons or greater will receive the additional award consideration.
