Indian Highway Safety Law Enforcement Grants
This program offers grants to assist Indian Tribes in implementing traffic safety programs and projects which are designated to reduce the number of traffic crashes, deaths, injuries and property damage within these populations. Tribes can apply for straight time or overtime hour law enforcement grants. These grants are funded in the form of reimbursements; Tribes first expend their funds and then submit documentation for reconciliation and reimbursement each month. Grant applications are due by May 1 of the current year for the next fiscal year award.
Eligible applicants are Federally recognized Tribes. Applicants must identify a traffic safety problem, and all applications must contain measurable targets/performance measures and must be justified by confirmable data.
