About the ITD Grant

Innovative highway technology can improve road safety and enforcement efficiency. Every year, cutting-edge tools increase what's possible. However, the volume and complexity of available technology can be costly and challenging to integrate with State and motor carrier systems.

The ITD Grant provides Federal funding and expertise that brings innovative technology deployment within States' reach. States identify their own technology priorities and needs, and the ITD safety innovation experts help States leverage the most appropriate tools.

ITD support is often used to:

  • Link Federal motor carrier safety information systems with State CMV systems.
  • Improve safety and productivity of CMVs and commercial drivers.
  • Reduce costs associated with CMV operations and regulatory requirements.

More Information on the ITD Grant

Part of FMCSA's High Priority Grant, the HP-ITD Grant is governed by 49 U.S.C. §§ 31102(l), as modified by Sections 23001(b) and 23003 through 23004 of Public Law Number 117-58 (2021), and by 49 CFR part 350.

ITD Grant Application Process

Application requirements will be indicated on the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) announcement and all required forms must be completed and uploaded in Grants.gov within the time frame provided. It is recommended that all potential applicants provide projects that are related to the priorities outlined in the NOFO.

Eligible ITD Grant recipients include any States, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands with a Program Plan/Top Level Design (PP/TLD) approved by the Secretary. Individuals and businesses are not eligible to apply. See the MCSAP Comprehensive Policy (MCP) for additional information on the FMCSA discretionary application review and approval process.

Monitoring and Managing the ITD Grant

ITD grant recipients are required to monitor activities throughout the grant's period of performance (POP) to ensure they are meeting their goals and fulfilling their safety mission. FMCSA monitors activities throughout the POP based on State-submitted quarterly progress and financial status reports.

Grantees can learn more about monitoring, reporting, audits, and other important aspects of managing grants in the FMCSA's online Grants Management Training.
