How Highway Safety Funds Can Boost Safe Routes to School

Tapping into the Highway Safety Improvement Program
August 1, 2013

During this webinar, attendees hear from the FHWA on the origin of the funding, criteria for its use as well as innovative approaches to accessing HSIP dollars for bicycle and pedestrian projects and programs.

The Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) is a program of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) that is focused on reducing highway fatalities and serious injuries – but can also be used on local roads. Bicycle and pedestrian projects – including non-infrastructure education and encouragement campaigns - are eligible for HSIP funding, but this funding source is infrequently accessed towards this end. During this webinar, attendees will hear from the FHWA on the origin of the funding, criteria for its use as well as innovative approaches to accessing HSIP dollars for bicycle and pedestrian projects and programs.
