Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)

The Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST) was signed into law on December 4, 2015. Under FAST, the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), codified as Section 148 of Title 23, United States Code (23 U.S.C §148), is a core federal-aid program to States for the purpose of achieving a significant reduction in fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. The Division of Local Assistance (DLA) manages California's local agency share of HSIP funds. California's Local HSIP focuses on infrastructure projects with nationally recognized crash reduction factors (CRFs). Local HSIP projects must be identified on the basis of crash experience, crash potential, crash rate, or other data-supported means.

  NEW Phase 2 call for applications for the Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program (SSARP) was announced on April 21, 2016. The application due date is Friday, May 27, 2016.  If an agency has submitted an application during Phase 1, they should not submit a new application.  Of the $10M set aside for this program, $4M will be released for Phase 1 and successful agencies will be notified within the next few weeks. Unselected applications from Phase 1 will be combined with applications received during Phase 2 and the remaining $6M will be released at that time.

Also, the next HSIP call for projects (Cycle 8) is expected to be announced the first part of May, 2016. On Thursday, May 19, 2016, Caltrans and FHWA will host a webinar to help local agencies in preparing the applications for Cycle 8 HSIP. Click here to for more information.
