In 2020, 6,516 pedestrians were killed and 54,769 were injured on America’s roadways. Many of these deaths could have been prevented through better roadway design and accessibility measures.

For the more than 1 in 4 Americans living with disabilities, navigating typical streets can be difficult and dangerous. Proven safety measures can have an enormous impact on fatality and injury rates, but funds for safer, more accessible streets have all too often been out of reach for smaller communities.  

The Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) grant program will award $1 billion per year over the next five years to qualifying traffic safety initiatives, and has a simplified application process, putting accessibility improvements within reach for every community. There’s never been a better time to build safe, accessible streets, and we’re happy to help make that happen. Download our free guide today for an easy-to-follow walkthrough of the application process and helpful links to other funding resources that can help you protect pedestrians in your community.
