The programs will involve public awareness campaigns and community events.

Grants were awarded through a competitive process based on such criteria as the defined safety need, the number of crossing collisions in the state and how the proposal uses the funding sought.

Other grant recipients include OLI organizations in California, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
