GEARS, Utah's Grants Electronic Application and Reporting System, is the web-based system which you utilize to apply for and manage your highway safety grant projects.

GEARS has been tailored to reduce the lag time associated with a paper-based system, provide users with a global view of the project at their fingertips, foster increased accountability to the federal oversight agency, and be environmentally friendly by saving some trees with a paperless system!

This page is designed to provide you with support as you utilize GEARS. If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the HSO or your program manager.

We look forward to utilizing GEARS and working with you to improve safety on our Utah highways.
