California Department of Transportation

Calls for Projects HSIP and SSARP

There are two different funding programs: Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) and Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program (SSARP).

Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)

The California local HSIP program funds local highway safety improvement projects. Normally an HSIP call-for-projects is made at an interval of one to two years. The applicant must be a city, a county, or a tribal government federally recognized with the State of California. The timing and size of the call is determined by the program apportionments, HSIP FTIP capacity and the delivery of the existing HSIP projects.

The next HSIP call for project (Cycle 8) is expected to be announced in April, 2016.

Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program (SSARP)

On October 21, 2015, $10 million from the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) was set aside and exchanged for state funds to implement the Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program (SSARP). The intent of the SSARP is to assist local agencies in performing a collision analysis, identifying safety issues on their roadway networks, and developing a list of systemic low-cost countermeasures that can be used to prepare future HSIP and other safety program applications.

The SSARP program will be implemented in two phases. Phase 1 call for applications is expected to be announced in February, 2016. Program guidelines and the application form will be available at this website. Please come back to visit soon.
