WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Representative Raúl M. Grijalva (AZ-07) announced $1.52 million in federal funding from the Department of Transportation (DOT) for Pima County to develop its Safe Streets for All Action Plan, focused on creating a culture of safety for all residents.
“This funding will go toward our common goal of reducing roadway accidents in Pima County,” said Rep. Grijalva. “Together with federal, county, city and Tribal partners, we will continue to work to make our streets more accessible and safer for all.”
“We greatly appreciate the federal government’s financial support to help reduce traffic-related injuries and to foster safe, healthy, and equitable mobility and transit systems for everyone in Pima County,” said Pima County Board Chair Adelita Grijalva.
The Safe Streets and Roads for All program grants support the DOT’s vision of zero roadway deaths and its National Roadway Safety Strategy: a comprehensive approach launched in January 2022 to make our nation’s roadways safer for everyone, including drivers, cyclists, pedestrians, and emergency and construction workers, by stressing responsible driving, safer roadway designs, appropriate speed-limit setting, and improved post-crash care, among other strategies.
