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)

$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 announced SSARP Phase 2 Call for Applications on April 21, 2016. The application due date is Friday, May 27, 2016. Please read the SSARP Guidelines and the Application Form Instructions before you start to prepare your applications. Applications received or postmarked after May 27, 2016 will not be accepted.
