The Community Road Safety Grants Program allows community groups and charity/not-for-profit organisations across NSW the opportunity to deliver local safety projects. Locally run projects will help increase road safety awareness and support safer road use.
Grants of up to $5,000 are available for road safety projects that involve community engagement. These projects should improve road safety awareness in local communities. Larger grants of up to $30,000 are also available. Detailed project plans will need to be provided for these grants, showing expenditure, project stages and time frames.
Community grants will create opportunities that:
- Allow community organisations to develop road safety projects in their local areas in partnership with other groups
- Encourage safer road user behaviour and reduce road trauma
- Contribute to achieving targets in the NSW Road Safety Plan 2021 for reducing deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
Transport for NSW will fund NSW community based organisations. Applications for grants that may impact upon road infrastructure will be subject to approval by Transport for NSW or local council before being granted.
Proposals need to demonstrate a road safety issue and propose an effective project concept to address the problem.
As always, we strongly recommend you check out the Case Studies from projects that previously received funding in past rounds.
