The Road to Zero (RTZ) initiative launched in 2016 by the National Safety Council, Federal Highway Administration, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration with the goal of eliminating roadway deaths within 30 years. In 2017, the Centers for Disease Control became a partner to RTZ, which now has about 900 coalition members. The U.S. Department of Transportation committed $1 million a year for three years and an additional $500,000 in Year 2 to fund Safe System Innovation Grants; NSC is distributing these grants.
Each application was reviewed and rated on the same criteria by four separate grant readers. In 2019, there were eight grant winners.
