FY2010 High Priority Grant: For FY 2010, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) anticipates awarding up to $15,000,000 in MCSAP High Priority (HP) grant funding. These funds will be awarded at FMCSA's discretion for safety initiatives such as State data quality improvement, high visibility Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) and non-CMV traffic enforcement, public information and education, enhancements to State training, HM safety and special research efforts, if not already funded with MCSAP Basic or Incentive funds, with particular emphasis on innovative State-specific efforts that have a demonstrable potential for nationwide implementation. TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT In FY 2010, FMCSA will dedicate between $5 and $10 million to traffic enforcement projects, such as the Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks (TACT) program. TACT projects must include three elements: high visibility messaging, targeted enforcement activities in selected high-risk traffic areas, and post-activity evaluation. The intent of TACT programs is to decrease unsafe driving practices of commercial and non-commercial drivers, and to raise the awareness of the enforcement activity and the campaign message. The education, or messaging component, can be funded at 100% Federal share, with no matching contribution by the grantee. The enforcement and evaluation components will be funded at 80% Federal share, with a 20% grantee matching requirement. Requests for TACT program funding must be submitted as two separate applications: an education component, to be funded at 100%, and an enforcement/evaluation component, to be funded at 80%. Combined applications showing all three components will be funded at 80%, and a 20% funding match will be required for the enforcement/evaluation component and for the education component as well. To assist States in the pre-implementation and planning phase, TACT Readiness grants may be awarded during the fiscal year prior to program launch. Additional information is available in Attachment 3. Traffic enforcement projects are not limited to TACT programs, and applicants are encouraged to develop enforcement activities tailored to meet their specific needs. Proposals can incorporate innovative strategies unique to the applicant's traffic environment, or may address CMV-related fatalities across multiple States by focusing on interstate corridors. NATIONWIDE SAFETY INITIATIVES In FY 2010, up to $5 million of HP funding will be dedicated to initiatives that promote nationwide safety, such as Rural Road CMV Safety Initiatives, Work Zone CMV Safety Improvements, and Passenger Carrier Safety, to be used as an enforcement tool.
