SSARP Phase 2 Call-for-applications and Local HSIP Cycle 8 Webinar

Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program (SSARP) Phase 2 Call-for-applications

Caltrans announced SSARP Phase 2 Call for Applications on April 21, 2016. The application due date is Friday, May 27, 2016.  If an agency has submitted an application during Phase 1, they should not submit a new application since unselected applications from Phase 1 will be combined with applications received during Phase 2 and re-evaluated.

$10 million from the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) was set aside and exchanged for state funds to implement a new safety analysis program, the Systemic Safety Analysis Report Program (SSARP). The intent of the SSARP is to assist local agencies in performing collision analysis, identifying safety issues on their roadway network, and developing a list of systemic low-cost countermeasures that can be used to prepare future HSIP and other safety program applications.

For more information including program guidelines, application form and application instructions, please visit our HSIP & SSARP webpage.
