The National Safety Council's Road to Zero Coalition has awarded 2018 Safe System Innovation Grants to three more organizations for innovative concepts to make roadways safer and eliminate preventable roadway deaths.

The latest three honorees join eight organizations that were recognized and awarded grants in March. The Federal Highway Administration provided a total of $500,000 funding for the current three recipients, which include:

Institute of Transportation Engineers; Vision Zero Network: Moving from Conversation to Action – A Scalable Training Resource on Speed Management

National Complete Streets Coalition, Smart Growth America: Safe Street, Smart Cities Academy

University of Michigan: Addressing Socioeconomic Disparities in Motor-Vehicle Fatalities

Criteria for receiving a 2018 Safe System Innovation Grant includes a clear explanation of how the organization's program will improve safety on the roadways, a timeframe for the reduction, an outline of how the program will be evaluated, and an overview how the organization intends to reach its target audience.
