Section 408 State Traffic Safety Information
System Improvement Grants

All State Highway Safety Grant Programs

History and Administration

The Section 408 State Traffic Safety Information System Improvement Grant program was authorized under SAFETEA-LU. This program replaced the Section 411 Data Incentive Grant program authorized under TEA-21. The program was administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at the federal level and the State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs) at the state level.

Under MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century, this program was replaced by Section 405(b) of the Section 405 National Priority Safety Program.

Purpose

This grant program was created to: encourage states to improve the timeliness, accuracy, completeness, uniformity, integration and accessibility of their state safety information; encourages linkage of data systems; and improve the compatibility of state and national data.

The state also must have satisfied a maintenance of effort requirement.

Funds were to be used to make safety information system improvements.

Funding

Eligible states received first-year grants equal to their proportionate share of Section 402 funds or at least $300,000, whichever was higher. In subsequent years, grant were equal to the proportionate share of Section 402 funds or at least $500,000, whichever was higher. The federal share payable was 80%. Unobligated funding was able to be transferred to the Section 405 or Section 410 programs.

SAFETEA-LU authorized the Section 408 program at $34.5 million each year for FY 2006 - FY 2009 and beyond.
