Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) Reporting Questions & Answers
What are the MAP-21 HSIP reporting requirements?
Specific MAP-21 HSIP reporting guidance is available at http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/map21/guidance/guidehsipreport.cfm. In general, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) eliminates the High Risk Rural Roads (HRRR) Program and no longer requires states to submit a transparency (5 percent) report. However, because HRRR funds apportioned under the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users Act ( SAFETEA-LU) are subject to the SAFETEA-LU HRRR requirements, States must continue reporting on HRRR expenditures under SAFETEA-LU as part of their HSIP reports. MAP-21 does not change the Railway-Highway Crossing Program reporting requirements.
How does MAP21 require reporting of State efforts to reduce fatalities and serious injuries on "off-system" roads?
MAP-21 requires States to report on the extent to which projects funded via the HSIP contribute to reducing the number and rate of fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads with, to the maximum extent practicable, a breakdown by functional classification and ownership in the State. (23 U.S.C. 148(h)(1)(C)) Additional information is available in the HSIP Reporting Guidance available at [insert link to guidance when available]. Additional information regarding reporting on railway-highway crossings is available in the Railway-Highway Crossing Program Reporting Guidance.
Is the Section 130 program a core program subject to the 50 percent transferability provisions?
No. Section 130 funds are a set-aside from the Highway Safety Improvement (HSIP) program. A State cannot transfer 50 percent of their Section 130 funds to another core program.
