Government Grants Within The United States Transportation Sector
Page 2

This agency is the United States Department of Transportation, more commonly referred to as the DOT. Established in the year 1966, the DOT has since been constantly working towards achieving it's primary agency mission which is to "Serve the United States by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible, and convenient transportation system that meets our vital national interests and enhances the quality of life of the American people, today and into the future."

To ensure full and comprehensive coverage, the DOT has established a couple of sub-agencies that are especially designed to attend to the specific needs and facets of the community.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), established in the year 2000, was engineered to look after the needs and concerns of the trucking industry in the United States. The mission of the FMCSA is to improve the safety of commercial motor vehicles (CMV) and truck drivers through enactment and enforcement of safety regulations.

On the other hand, the DOT also has the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is primarily created to write and enforce safety, theft-resistance, and fuel economy standards for motor vehicles. The mission of the agency is to "Save lives, prevent injuries, reduce vehicle-related crashes."

Apart from the sub-agencies detailed above, there are still many other agencies under the Department of Transportation, and while all of them adhere to different guidelines and specific target areas, all of them are tasked to ensure that the transportation system in the country remains steadfast and forever operational.
