The Central Region Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety (MCRS) is currently accepting grant applications from area law enforcement agencies and other entities to fund activities and tools needed to reduce traffic fatalities and crashes with serious injuries.

Grants can be used to cover the cost of overtime for saturation patrols and law enforcement, as well as for equipment to assist with enforcement, such as radar guns and intoximeters. Monies will also be allocated for Educational Programs.

To be considered for funding, complete and submit a grant application by Oct. 1, 2017. Funding decisions will be made by Oct. 31, 2017.
