Why are these grants available?

The NHTSA funds are awarded to sub-grantees thru KOHS:

  • to help reduce crashes, injuries, fatalities and associated cost
  • by identifying transportation safety issues and developing implementing effective integrated programs and activities.

How do I submit an application?

Potential grantees log into (or create a new login) to the online submission system IGX. Once there, the My Opportunities panel will display the 2 different types of applications. You will click on the application and start filling it out. Once you have completed the application, you will submit the application. The application will ask for information regarding:

  • Problem Statement
  • Data
  • Goals/Objectives
  • Tasks/Activities/Milestones
  • Budget
  • Plans for Cost Sharing

How do these grants work?

Grants reimburse actual costs to grantees that they have incurred and paid during the grant cycle.

We have transitioned to a new online application and claim submission system.  Below you will find the link to the new Grants Management System.
