When completing a Grant Application, the narrative should state the specific safety problem as well as providing three years of data supporting the existence of the problem. Additionally, measurable objectives should be identified to evaluate the efficacy of the program.

 
 
  Comprehensive Traffic Safety Programs (CTSP's)  
 
Comprehensive Traffic Safety Program grants address multiple traffic safety concerns within a county or larger community.
CTSP grants include numerous tasks and strategies involving enforcement, education and engineering.
The potential grantee must provide a detailed Problem Identification section with extensive information about the community, motor vehicle crash experience (including pedestrian & bicycle), data analysis and creative solutions
to reduce these crashes.
 
  Seat Belts  
 
The current seat belt usage rate in New Jersey is 91%.
The goal of the seat belt program is to continue to raise this usage rate in the years ahead.
In the Central Region, seat belt grant funding is distributed through the annual Click It or Ticket two-week enforcement mobilization.
Contact the Region Supervisor to be considered for the next Click It or Ticket funding cycle
 
  Impaired Driving (Alcohol and Other Drugs)  
 
The proportion of alcohol-related fatalities in New Jersey is 19%.
In the Central Region, impaired driving enforcement grant funding is distributed through the Year-End and August/September "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" crackdowns.
Year-round, countywide sobriety checkpoint and DRE call-out grants will also be considered.
Contact the Region Supervisor to be considered for the next "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" funding cycle.
 
  Pedestrian Safety  
 
Because the proportion of pedestrian fatalities in New Jersey is 25% (well above the national average), pedestrian safety is a continuing priority.
The goal of the pedestrian safety program area is to lower the pedestrian fatality and injury rates.
In the Central Region, municipalities that are statistically high for pedestrian injury crashes are eligible to apply for our Pedestrian Safety Grant.
The grant includes funding for overtime enforcement at pedestrian safety hot spots in the community and educational outreach throughout the community.
Contact the Region Supervisor to find out if you qualify and to receive further information.
 
  Child Passenger Safety  
 
Child passenger safety grants are concentrated at the regional or County level, focusing on consistently scheduled “stations” in lieu of roving checkpoints. Booster seat education materials have been developed and grantees are required to address this issue.
 
  Mobilizations and Crackdowns  
 
All police agencies in the Central Region are expected to support statewide enforcement campaigns, whether funded or non-funded:
 
Click It or Ticket: May 2014
Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over (2): August and December 2014
 
  Other Eligible Programs  
 
Grant applications may also be submitted that utilize enforcement, education or engineering counter-measures to address other specific traffic safety issues including:
 
Speed
Aggressive Driving
Bicycling Safety
Crash Investigation
Distractions
EMS Training
Motorcycle Safety
School Bus/Pupil Transportation
Traffic Engineering - primarily pedestrian pavement markings and pedestrian signs, but some traffic studies will be considered
For any of these program areas, potential grantees should utilize the SAGE (E-Grants) application and should plan to include a detailed Problem Identification section with 3 years of motor vehicle crash injury or property damage statistics, goals, objectives and strategies.
Data Driven Approach to Crime and Traffic Safety (DDACTS)
NJDHTS and NHTSA are offering workshops to Police
Departments on how to implement this business model throughout the State several times a year.
Training will be offered to Police Data Analysts on how to
more effectively link their available data to a more effective
deployment of officers.
 
 
For additional information on these or other programs please contact Ed O'Connor, Central Region Supervisor, at 609-633-9048 or Edward.O'Connor@lps.state.nj.us
