Pedestrian Safety Action Plan Implementation Grants

In 2012, 700 pedestrians in Oregon were hospitalized and 60 were killed in traffic crashes. Lack of safety – both real and perceived – is consistently cited by the public as one of the biggest concerns that keeps them from walking more in local communities.

Decreasing pedestrian injuries and fatalities in a community requires strong partnerships between a variety of agencies to develop and implement effective strategies at multiple levels. The purpose of the Pedestrian Safety Action Plan Implementation Grants is to enhance community-wide pedestrian safety efforts by strengthening partnerships between partners that have a stake in pedestrian safety, as well as to increase the capacity of local organizations to implement pedestrian safety initiatives.
