Don’t miss out on $1.5 million Victorian road safety grants

Road safety

Applications for the Victorian government’s $1.5 million Community Road Safety Grants Program are set to close on March 6 this year.

Victorian councils, schools and not-for-profit organisations can apply for state government funding for programs that aim to improve road safety and reduce the number of lives lost on local roads.

State roads minister Melissa Horne says grants and programs such as these are incredibly important to communities.

“Road safety is all about people and our communities. That’s why localised community action is so important in eliminating death and serious injury on our roads,” she says.

“These targeted, community-driven projects will help deliver a positive road safety message and we encourage the Victorian community to get involved in the Community Road Safety Grants Program to help reduce road trauma.”

Who can apply?

You must represent an organisation that is:

  • Incorporated under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) or the Associations Incorporations Reform Act 2012 (Vic) and have a current Australian Business Number (ABN) (or have proof you have applied for one) that is not for a commercial entity or individuals; or
  • A Local Government Authority (LGA); or
  • A School
  • If your organisation does not meet the above criteria you must nominate an eligible auspice organisation to apply for a grant. Auspice organisations must meet the above criteria; and can include LGAs.
