Resource Type

DISCLAIMER: The GHSA HSP Guidance does not contain any information regarding the use of the NHTSA Grant Management Solutions Suite (GMSS).

Updated November 2018

This document is intended to help State Highway Safety Offices develop their federally required annual Highway Safety Plans (HSPs). It was most recently revised in November 2018. The yellow highlighted sections are those which contain additions or modifications from the previous revision in May 2017. Although the GHSA HSP Guidance does not provide information regarding the use of the NHTSA GMSS for submitting the HSP, the basic planning and process principles and regulatory references may be used as a general guide to overall planning and compliance with the NHTSA Final Rule issued January 25, 2018.

States are encouraged to thoroughly read both the January 2018 NHTSA Final Rule and this GHSA HSP Guidance during the preparation of their HSP.
