High Priority Grants for Commercial Drivers' Safety

Orlando, Fla.—The Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) recently announced $80,714,223 in grant awards under the High Priority (HP) Grant Program. FMCSA awarded more than $45.2 million through the HP grant program in FY 2021, including $35.7 million to 33 States, $2 million to five local jurisdictions, and $7.6 million to 10 additional entities, including eight universities.

The HP Grant Program provides financial assistance to supplement motor carrier safety activities and projects, including those that:

  • improve the safe and secure movement of hazardous materials;
  • improve safe transportation of goods and persons in foreign commerce; 
  • demonstrate new technologies to improve CMV safety; 
  • technology advancements to enhance CMV operator awareness of roadway hazards and truck parking availability;
  • support participation in performance and registration information systems management;
  • conduct safety data improvement projects;
  • increase public awareness and education on CMV safety;
  • target unsafe driving of CMVs in areas identified as high-risk crash corridors, including roadway work zones;
  • otherwise improve CMV safety and compliance with CMV safety regulations.

HP grant funds are awarded to States, local governments, Federally recognized Native American tribes, political jurisdictions, non-profit organizations, institutions of higher education, and other eligible groups to carry out high priority activities and projects that strengthen commercial motor vehicle safety. Individuals and for-profit organizations are not eligible to apply. Another initiative to support truck drivers, include investing in community colleges to train veterans to get CDLs, investing in improvements to CDL processing, standing up the Women of Trucking Advisory Board, studying the impacts of driver detention time, and starting the truck predatory leasing task force.

As part of their mission to reduce commercial motor vehicle crashes, FMCSA provides financial assistance to States and other partners through various grant opportunities—including the Commercial Driver’s License Program Implementation (CDLPI) and High Priority (HP) grant programs. You must complete online courses, and review additional information available on their website, that will help you get prepared to submit your application and partner with FMCSA to help keep our roads safe.
