Commonwealth of Virginia Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program: Implementation Grant Application

Report No: 85-R9

Published in 1984

About the report:

In 1983 the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) established the Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP) by adding Part 350 to Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations. These regulations set the requirements states must meet to qualify for grants to finance enforcement of motor carrier safety and highway hazardous materials regulations. Virginia requested developmental funding under the MCSAP and received a $50,000 development grant in February 1984. That grant was used to prepare an Implementation Grant Application and a State Enforcement Plan (SEP), and to perform other developmental activities. The SEP is the heart of the application. It explores the state's existing motor carrier safety problems, outlines Virginia's current enforcement activities, enumerates the objectives and goals of the program, lists the resources to be employed, explains the methodology to be followed, and develops a plan for program evaluation.
