Amendment and Updated Resources for the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Notice of Funding Opportunity


On August 1, 2022, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) published a technical amendment to the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). The amendment is technical in nature, which includes clarifying the instructions for making data calculations necessary for the Action Plan and Implementation Grant applications, as well as other minor updates.

To coincide with the amendment, we created a new version of the Underserved Communities Census Tracts tool in order to more easily extract the calculations needed for applications. This tool uses the same methodology as the original Historically Disadvantaged Communities tool, but it includes the population data to make it easier for applicants to calculate the percent population in underserved communities directly in the tool.

The updates are available on the SS4A website and The deadline for applications remains September 15, 2022, and the deadline for technical questions is August 15, 2022. Technical questions received after August 15 will not receive a response. We expect a final set of FAQs and resources will be made available on our website by August 31.

About Safe Streets and Roads for All

Established by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the new Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) discretionary program will provide at least $5 billion in appropriated funds over the next 5 years. In fiscal year 2022 (FY22), up to $1 billion was made available. The SS4A program funds regional, local, and Tribal initiatives through grants to prevent roadway deaths and serious injuries. The SS4A program supports Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg’s National Roadway Safety Strategy and the Department’s goal of zero deaths and serious injuries on our nation’s roadways.
