The Central Region Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety is now accepting grant applications from area law enforcement agencies to fund activities and tools designed to reduce traffic fatalities.

Grants can be used to cover the cost of overtime for checkpoints, saturation patrols and law enforcement, as well as for equipment to help with enforcement, such as radar guns and intoximeters. Grant activities must be completed and reported by June 1.

To be considered for funding, applications must be submitted by Feb. 1. Funding decisions will be made by March 1.
