Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Grant Program
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) established the new Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) discretionary program with $5 billion in appropriated funds over the next 5 years. 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, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s goal of zero deaths and serious injuries on our nation’s roadways, FDOT’s goal of zero deaths and serious injuries on Florida’s roadways, and the River to Sea TPO’s goal of zero deaths and serious injuries on Volusia and Flagler roadways.
