Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) Grants


The goal of the annual program is to prevent serious injury and death resulting from motor vehicle crashes so that all roadway users arrive at their destination safely. Using Federal Highway Safety Program funds, OTS partners with political subdivisions of the state to address California’s highway safety needs at the state, county, and local level. OTS cannot directly fund a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization; however, these entities are eligible for funding through a “host” government agency (subrecipient) as a contractor. Generally transportation safety education and encouragement activities and events can be funded via these grants. For more information visit the OTS Grants webpage.
