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.
Cycle 8 HSIP call for projects was announced on May 9, 2016. The deadline to submit an application is Friday, August 12, 2016. To help local agencies in preparing the applications for Cycle 8 HSIP, Caltrans and FHWA will host a webinar On May 19, 2016. Click here for the details.
Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program (SSARP)Currently there is no active SSARP call for applications.
$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.
Caltrans made SSARP calls for applications in two phases (February and April of 2016). 108 applications have been received requesting $17.6 million of state funds. After prioritization, 61 projects with a total of $10 million of SSARP state funds were selected for implementation.
