Agency Name

DOT Federal Highway Administration


The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) hereby requests applications for assistance to result in the award of multiple grant agreements under the Highways for LIFE Technology Partnerships Program. The focus of the 2012 Technology Partnership Program solicitation is to work with the highway industry to accelerate the adoption of promising innovations that 1) have the potential to directly reduce crashes or crash severity or 2) innovations that significantly enhance decision-making relative to the deployment of treatments to reduce crashes, crash severity and the understanding of the effectiveness of the treatments. The program is intended to provide the financial impetus to demonstrate a proven non-highway related innovation or to refine or improve existing innovations that have been demonstrated but not become adopted as routine or common practice in the highway industry.
