The Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) announces $22 million federal grant funds will be distributed statewide from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for the 2018-2019 Federal Fiscal Year. 

Over 350 federal grants exceeding $19 million have been awarded to law enforcement agencies and highway safety partners across Tennessee, many of which are in the Tennessee Valley area.

Approximately $3 million in media grant funds will be allocated for highway safety education and public awareness campaigns.

“Every year, traffic safety advocates, non-profit organizations, emergency response personnel, law enforcement, District Attorneys’ offices, and other state agencies across Tennessee seek funding through grant applications offered by the THSO,” said THSO Director Vic Donoho.

“Applicants who meet the required data-driven criteria and highway safety standards are awarded grant funds to support the THSO’s mission to reduce traffic crashes, injuries, and fatalities.”
