|TOPEKA – The Kansas Department of Transportation is hosting a webinar at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 10, to discuss the Kansas Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Match Pilot Program.
Cities, counties, metropolitan planning organizations and federally recognized Tribal governments can apply for the grant, which provide an opportunity to leverage federal and state funding to create safety plans or safety projects on roads not operated or maintained by KDOT. For information and to ask questions, representatives from these groups are encouraged to register for the webinar: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_FV8PVVkiTeShXcnYFhtLtw
This will be the only webinar regarding the application process for the U.S. DOT SS4A discretionary grant and the Kansas SS4A Match Pilot Program funding. This program supports the Kansas Drive to Zero Coalition’s goal of reducing fatal and serious injury crashes on public roadways through safety action plan development, refinement and implementation.
Last year, the Kansas SS4A Match Pilot Program provided $1 million in funding for 12 SS4A recipients to develop Safety Action Plans. This year, the Kansas program is expanding cost share to include Planning and Demonstration Grants as well as Implementation Grants.
