State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs) implement behavioral highway safety programs with federal grant funds largely by sub-allocating funding to other state and local agencies and nonprofits.

SHSOs must be monitor these grants to ensure that sub-grantees are spending their funds in the manner intended.

GHSA developed this Monitoring Advisory to enhance the state monitoring processes. It was reviewed by the GHSA Executive Board and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and adopted by the GHSA membership in September 2006. This new updated version was posted in 2012.
