GHSA has produced the following resources to help State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs) most effectively manage their behavioral highway safety programs.
Maintenance of Effort (MOE) Advisory
This document [191 KB, 6 pgs.] provides advice regarding the annual calculation of maintenance of effort (MOE) required of the states to qualify for three of the Section 405 grant programs. The Advisory is based upon the official NHTSA Guidance and includes examples from three states.
Each state is responsible for calculating their MOE in a manner which they believe meets the statutory requirement using their best available information.
GHSA Policies and Procedures Manual
Updated to reflect MAP-21 requirements.
This manual is a guide to assist staff in administering the NHTSA traffic safety grant program in compliance with applicable state and federal laws and regulations.
It is intended for use by SHSO personnel, Department of Transportation employees, state and local government officials, and anyone interested in the procedures which are followed by the SHSOs.
