HSIP Call for Projects Released – Apply now for SRTS/Bike/Ped!

On Monday, April 29, 2013, Caltrans Division of Local Assistance announced a Call for Projects for the Cycle 6 Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). This Call for Projects is targeted for approximately $150 million for HSIP based on the estimated available programming capacity.

Applications are due by Friday, July 26, 2013 and should be submitted to the attention of the District Local Assistance Engineers (DLAEs). Applications received or postmarked later than July 26 will not be accepted. For program guidelines, application form and other useful documents, please go to http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/LocalPrograms/HSIP/apply_now.htm

If an agency has active HSIP or HR3 projects that are flagged for not meeting delivery milestones, Caltrans will not accept HSIP applications from the agency unless the flags have been resolved prior to the application due date. For delivery requirements and project delivery status, please go to http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/LocalPrograms/HSIP/delivery_status.htm

A webinar will be held on Thursday, May 16, 2013, from 10:00 am PST to 12:00 pm PST, to go over the HSIP application process and process changes that have been incorporated into the Cycle 6 call. Agencies interested in submitting applications are encouraged to register for this free webinar. To register for this webinar, please go to

In preparation for this Call for Projects, Caltrans also developed and presented several training and guidance tools, including: three statewide webinars, general lessons learned, examples of successful applications, and additional guidance. In addition, “Local Roadway Safety Manual for California Local Road Owners” is still considered a key resource to assist local agencies in preparing a proactive safety analysis of their roadway network and identifying appropriate countermeasures for their high crash concentration locations. Caltrans expects the local agencies that utilize the concepts in this manual and the training documents as they submit applications for this Call for Projects will significantly improve their probability of securing federal funding. All of these documents are available on the HSIP website.

Please contact your DLAEs if you have any questions regarding this Call for Projects. For DLAE contact information, go to: http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/LocalPrograms/dlae.htm
