D. Funding

The R&D function is supported by three funding sources: (1) internal departmental budget support, (2) federal grants from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), State Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and (3) special legislative appropriations or interagency agreements with other state departments. During the past 35 years, the R&D Branch has received over 9 million dollars in federal funds. R&D is also involved as co-investigator on projects with outside research groups and, when appropriate, contracts with outside groups to perform research studies.
