Formula Funding Criteria
For FY 2017 and until the new MCSAP allocation formula is implemented, the FAST Act requires FMCSA to utilize an interim formula calculation which mandates that a State’s MCSAP funding amount be calculated by adding the traditional Basic and Incentive award, as applicable, to the 3-year average (FY 2013-2015) of that jurisdiction’s New Entrant and Border Enforcement (if applicable) grant award totals. Funds are awarded as described below:
Basic funds are distributed proportionally to the States using the following four, equally weighted (25 percent), factors.
A State lead MCSAP agency may qualify for Incentive Funds if it can demonstrate that its CMV safety program has shown improvement in any or all of the following five categories:
- Reduction in the number of large truck-involved fatal accidents;
- Reduction in the rate of large-truck-involved fatal accidents or maintenance of a large- truck-involved fatal accident rate that is among the lowest 10 percent of such rates for MCSAP recipients and is not higher than the rate most recently achieved;
- Upload of CMV accident reports in accordance with current FMCSA policy guidelines;
- Verification of Commercial Driver's Licenses during all roadside inspections; and
- Upload of CMV inspection data in accordance with current FMCSA.
