Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A)
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) established the new Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) discretionary program, with $5 billion in appropriated funds over five years, 2022-2026. The SS4A program funds regional, local, and Tribal initiatives through grants to prevent roadway deaths and serious injuries. Cities are eligible for two types of grants through SS4A. Planning grants support cities in developing or updating a comprehensive safety action plan. Implementation grants support cities to carry out projects and strategies identified in an Action Plan.
