This document 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 MAP-21 MOE report 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.

The Advisory was revised in May 2017 based upon the official NHTSA Guidance provided in an April 2017 webinar. The September 2018 revision includes a change made within the NHTSA Final Rule issued January 25, 2018.
