With the passage of Proposition 64, The AUMA, in 2016 California voters mandated the state set aside funding for the California Highway Patrol (CHP).  It is the intent of the CHP to enhance traffic safety by administering AUMA grant funds to educate the public regarding the dangers of impaired driving, fund efforts to remove impaired drivers from the roadway, and advance research into impaired driving issues.

Project funds shall be used to improve and advance data collection in Medical Examiner/Coroner’s offices/divisions supporting DUI/DUID when a death occurs while the deceased was driving or riding in a motor vehicle, or a result of the deceased being struck by a motor vehicle.  

Toxicology projects shall include the following project activities: Take biological samples (ex: blood, urine, tissue, saliva, etc.) from the body of the deceased before it is prepared for burial to test for both alcohol and drugs, and data collection.

Grant applications shall be submitted through the online Grant Management System (GMS).  Applications will be reviewed and approved through the GMS.  Notification of awards will be sent to the awarded grantees electronically. 

Eligible cost categories include: Personnel, Equipment, and Consultants/Contracts and Other Direct Costs.
