February 8, 2013

The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21; P.L. 112-141) made several changes to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) state highway safety grant programs. Those changes were codified on January 23, 2013, through Federal Register Document 2013-00682. This interim final rule (IFR) implements new state highway safety grant regulations to incorporate a new performance evaluation process and a new consolidated application requirement. NHTSA also solicits comments based on these new regulations.
