Each state has a Highway Traffic Safety Section that receives and manages funding from the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for implementing behavioral programs aimed
at improving traffic safety.The State Highway Traffic Safety Section of the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT-SHTSS)
serves that function in Montana, under the leadership of the Governor’s Representative for
Highway Traffic Safety.
Applications are now being accepted for the FFY 2020 (October 1, 2019 through September 30,
2020) projects. All programs and projects must support strategies set forth in Montana's Comprehensive Highway Safety Plan (CHSP).

approach to road safety in Montana. The CHSP can be found at the following link.
