Department of Transportation

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 High Priority-Commercial Motor Vehicle (HP-CMV) program Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), Funding Opportunity Number FM-MHP-22-001, to solicit applications from eligible entities to support HP-CMV program activities.

As the lead government agency responsible for the regulation and safety oversight of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs), FMCSA may award HP-CMV funds to support innovative and impactful projects that advance its mission to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses. Funding is available for the support of enforcement projects that improve safety and compliance with FMCSA’s regulations at the State, local government, and national levels. Other objectives include increasing public awareness/education, development of new technologies, and reducing the number and rate of CMV crashes.

The objective of the HP-CMV program is to support, enrich, or evaluate CMV safety programs and to target unsafe driving of CMVs and non–CMVs in areas identified as high-risk crash corridors, promote the safe and secure movement of hazardous materials, improve safety of transportation of goods and passengers in foreign commerce, demonstrate new technologies to improve CMV safety, support participation in the Performance Registration Information Systems Management (PRISM) program, support safety data improvement projects, increase public awareness and education on CMV safety, and otherwise improve CMV safety (see 49 CFR § 350.403).
