Township Safety Sign Grant Program
The Township Safety Sign Grant Program is currently accepting applications now through June 7, 2019. Townships eligible to apply for the grant during the 2019 application period are contacted in various ways, including a direct mailing of materials to notify them of eligibility to apply for the grant. If you want to check your Township's eligibility, please click on the link below for the Township Sign Grant Invitees List for 2019.
If you would like to learn more about the program, please click on the "Township Sign Grant Guidance Document 2019" available in a link below.
Background about the program: This grant program provides up to $50,000 per township in safety sign materials (signs, posts and hardware) for townships determined to:
- Have a greater than average crash rating across their entire township based on their township's crash history over the previous five years and
- Not previously having received funding under this grant program
The top one hundred townships meeting the criteria are traditionally invited to apply each funding cycle. For this current application period, two hundred townships have been invited to apply for the program due to a temporary increase in available safety funding.
All Townships who plan to submit an application during this funding cycle must attend a pregrant meeting. The same meeting will be held three different times around the state based on where the highest number of Townships eligible to apply are located. If you are from an eligible Township and will be attending one of the pregrant meetings, please click the link below for the meeting you are planning to attend to register:
