Community Grants

The Government of Western Australia has made funds available from the Road Trauma Trust Account to assist in the development and implementation of road safety projects. These road safety projects need to foster widespread community support and participation throughout the State to assist in the prevention of road crashes causing serious injury and death. Grants are available for projects that focus on the Safe System approach that aligns with Towards Zero 2008-2020, the State Government’s road safety strategy.

Applications must be received at least three months prior to the event and are assessed bi-monthly. Applications close on the first Friday of February, April, June, August, October and December.

Grant applications are assessed by the Road Safety Community Grants Committee which recommends a list for the Minister for Road Safety's consideration.

Road Safety Community Grants are available to support either community events or projects.

Event Grants encourage community groups to participate and include road safety activities within their event. Successful applicants will be supplied with a road safety message with relevant information and suggestions for supporting policies.

Project Grants are made available to groups to implement road safety projects. These are usually 12 month projects with a plan to be sustainable after funding. The amount funded is based on the Committee’s assessment of the application.

To apply for either an Event or a Project Grant please read the criteria and complete the application form (all applicants must have an ABN number).
