The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued a solicitation for applications for a pilot recall notification program required under the FAST Act.

A successful program will increase awareness of motor vehicle safety defects, improving safety on a state’s roads. States have up to 60 days to submit an application for a grant.
