Description: Competitive grants to support local initiatives to prevent death and serious injury on roads and streets, commonly referred to as Vision Zero or Toward Zero Deaths initiatives.

Implementation Grants are available to implement strategies and fund activities and projects that are consistent with an existing Action Plan.

States are ineligible.
