Local HSIP Cycle 12 Call-for-projects

Local HSIP Cycle 12 Call-for-projects is now active.

Local HSIP Cycle 12 Call-for-projects was announced on May 6, 2024. The application deadline is Monday, September 9, 2024. Any submittal after midnight of September 9, 2024 will not be accepted.  The applications must be submitted electronically. Please review the Application Instructions for more details. For any questions regarding the call for projects, please contact your Caltrans District Local Assistance Engineer (DLAE).

All applicants are expected to review the HSIP Guidelines and Local Roadway Safety Manual for California Local Road Owners prior to working on their specific applications:

  • HSIP Guidelines (PDF) provide overall guidance and general information for the HSIP program.
  • Local Roadway Safety Manual for California Local Road Owners (PDF) is intended to assist local agencies in preparing a proactive safety analysis of their roadway networks, identifying their safety improvement priorities and applying appropriate countermeasures. The local agencies are expected to utilize the concepts in this manual in developing safety projects for competing the HSIP funding. 

Below are the documents you must have in order to prepare and submit an application. Please download all these documents for your use.

Note:  Both the Application Form and the HSIP Analyzer are dynamic forms. At a minimum, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is needed in order to complete and save the files. You may download Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for free at https://www.adobe.com/acrobat/pdf-reader.html.


The applicants must complete the application form and the attachments for each application. The application form will be submitted electronically to Caltrans (see “Submit your HSIP application” session on this webpage).

HSIP Analyzer is a PDF form-based tool that streamlines the project cost estimate, crash data input and Benefit Cost Ratio (BCR) calculation. The use of the HSIP Analyzer is required for all applications in HSIP Cycle 12.

In order to apply for the local HSIP funds, an agency must have completed their Local Roadway Safety Plan (LRSP) or an equivalent of the LRSP. Download this template and attach the completed LRSP Certification to the Application Form.

Engineer’s Checklist is required for all applications. Once your application has been finalized, please complete the checklist, and attach the scanned checklist to the application form.
