Safety Funding Program

Each year, ODOT's Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) provides $1 million dollars in funding to upgrade safety signage on Ohio's Township Roadways. Townships are invited to apply for the safety funding based on the following criteria: Ranked among the top townships with above average, systemwide crash rates based on their previous five years crash history, and Have not previously received a Township Sign Safety Grant under this program. This program allows townships to request safety signage along with related posts and hardware, to upgrade existing or install additional safety signage in a systemic manner across the township's entire roadway system. The limit per request, per township, is $50,000 (fifty thousand dollars). The application period for township-wide signage safety grant is currently closed. It will open again in winter of 2015 - 2016. If your township is eligible to apply, you will be contacted by our office.
