The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is offering the State Electronic Data Collection (SEDC) Grant. This grant aims to provide funding to states for upgrading and standardizing state crash data systems. The goal is to enable full electronic data transfer to NHTSA, improving the accuracy, timeliness, and accessibility of crash data, including data related to fatalities involving vulnerable road users. The grant is part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and is available to state governments. Each state is eligible for one award, and a total of up to $350,000,000 is available for funding. The grant requires cost sharing or matching. The deadline for applications is May 15, 2024. For more information and to apply, contact Chris Clarke, Contract Specialist, at


On November 15, 2021, Congress enacted the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) P.L. 117-58, also referred to as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). Pursuant to BIL, section 24108(d), Congress mandated that NHTSA establish the State Electronic Data Collection (SEDC) program to provide grants to States to upgrade and standardize state crash data systems to enable full electronic data transfer to NHTSA, which includes enabling electronic data collection, intrastate data sharing, and electronic data transfer to NHTSA to increase the accuracy, timeliness, and accessibility of the data, including data relating to fatalities involving vulnerable road users. This program implements the BIL SEDC grant program. NHTSA is an operating administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) with a mission to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce economic costs due to road traffic crashes, through education, research, safety standards, and enforcement. NHTSA is authorized by 49 U.S.C. § 30182 and 23 U.S.C. § 403 to collect data on motor vehicle traffic crashes to conduct research, aid in the identification of safety issues and the development, implementation, and evaluation of motor vehicle and highway safety countermeasures and traffic safety programs that will reduce the severity of injury and property damage caused by motor vehicle crashes. NHTSA uses crash data to identify crash trends and characteristics, potential causes, and injury outcomes to develop strategies and countermeasures to prevent motor vehicle crashes and mitigate injuries due to motor vehicle crashes. Through the SEDC grant program, DOT expects the expanded availability, timeliness, and accessibility of reportable crash data will create a system that will more rapidly and comprehensively identify recent changes, expand the number of insights derived from the data, and better enable analysis to inform policy and decision making. Once States have fully implemented the activities funded through this NOFO, NHTSA expects to publish crash data collected through grant recipients for public use.
