    The Indian Highway Safety Program (IHSP) solicits proposals for implementing traffic safety programs and projects which are designed to reduce the number of traffic crashes, deaths, injuries, and property damage within these populations.

    In FY2018, proposals were solicited for the following program areas:

    • Impaired Driving: Programs directed at reducing injuries and death attributed to impaired driving on the reservations such as: selective traffic enforcement programs (STEP) to apprehend impaired drivers, specialized law enforcement training (such as standardized field sobriety testing), public information programs on alcohol/other drug use and driving, education programs for convicted DWI/DUI offenders, youth alcohol education programs promoting traffic safety, DUI/Impaired driving courts, and programs or projects directed toward judicial training. Proposals for projects that enhance the development and implementation of innovative programs to combat impaired driving are also solicited.
    • Occupant Protection: Programs directed at decreasing injuries and deaths attributed to the lack of safety belt and child restraint usage such as: surveys to determine usage rates and to identify high-risk non-users, comprehensive programs to promote correct usage of child safety seats and other occupant restraints, enforcement of safety belt ordinances or laws, specialized training (e.g., Operation Kids, traffic occupant protection strategies (TOPS), Standardized Child Passenger Safety Technician Training), and evaluations.
    • Traffic Records: Programs to help Tribes develop or update electronic traffic records systems which will assist with analysis of crash information, causational factors, and support joint efforts with other agencies to improve the Tribes traffic records system.

    Eligible expenses include:

    • Salary for a full-time highway safety officer
    • Overtime for Tribal officers
    • Fringe benefits
    • GSA leases
    • Training
    • Travel
