Section 410 Alcohol-Impaired Driving
Countermeasure Incentive Grant

All State Highway Safety Grant Programs

History and Administration

The Section 410 Alcohol-Impaired Driving Countermeasure Incentive Grant Program was initially authorized by the Omnibus Drug Initiative of 1989 and has been reauthorized and amended a number of times since then, including under SAFETEA-LU. The program was administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) at the federal level and the State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs) at the state level.

Under MAP-21 (Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century, this program was replaced by Section 405(c) of the Section 405 National Priority Safety Program.

Purpose

This program provided incentive grants to states that implemented effective programs to reduce traffic safety problems resulting from impaired driving.

Requirements

Under SAFETEA-LU, a state was eligible for this grant in one of two ways:

The state also must have satisfied a maintenance of effort requirement.

Funding

SAFETEA-LU authorized the Section 410 program at the following levels:

The federal share payable was 75%, declining to 25% in the final year of the program. Not more than 15% of the total program must have been earmarked for the 10 states with the highest impaired driving fatality rates, and none of these 10 "high risk" state could have received more than 30% of the earmarked funding. These states must have prepared an impaired driving plan that was approved by NHTSA, and half of the funding must have been used for sobriety checkpoints or saturation patrols. Funds were allocated on the basis of the Section 402 formula. Unobligated funds were able to be transferred into the Section 405 or Section 408 programs.

Total dollar amounts allocated under SAFETEA-LU are shown below. Click on a column header to see all federal highway safety funding for that fiscal year.
