The HSIP is a core Federal-aid highway program, the purpose of which is to achieve a significant reduction in fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads. The HSIP is a Federally-funded, State-administered program that is legislated under 23 U.S.C. 148, 23 U.S.C. 150, and 23 U.S.C. 130 and regulated by 23 CFR Parts 924 and 490.

 
To be eligible for HSIP funds, all highway safety improvement projects must:
1.  Address a Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) priority,
2.  Be identified through a data-driven process, and
3.  Contribute to reduction in fatalities and serious injuries.
 
In addition, all highway safety improvement projects are subject to general requirements under title 23 of the United States Code. Highway safety improvement projects are considered consistent with a State's SHSP if they logically flow from identified SHSP emphasis areas and strategies. The SHSP emphasis areas should guide HSIP problem identification, and SHSP strategies should influence countermeasure identification and HSIP project selection.  In general, non-infrastructure projects that promote the awareness of the public and educate the public concerning highway safety matters or enforce highway safety laws are not eligible for HSIP funds. However, eligible non-infrastructure projects include Road Safety Audits, improvements in the collection and analysis of data, or transportation safety planning activities.
