Event Grants

To further encourage community groups to participate in road safety, the Road Safety Community Grant Program provides from $50 to $1,000 in event grants. Successful applicants will be supplied with a road safety message with relevant information and suggestions for supporting policies.

Overview

All event grant applications are assessed by the Road Safety Community Grants Committee. The grant amount will be based on:

  • Number of attendees.
  • Promotion and delivery of the road safety message.
  • Supporting policies.

Criteria:

  • There should be no conflicting road safety messages at the event.

  • Successful applicants must agree to put up signage and return the signs after the event.
  • Where possible a supporting policy should be implemented.
  • List other road safety activities planned which could include brochures, quizzes, etc. (this will also determine the funding amount).
  • Must be a not-for-profit group/organisation.
  • Limit of one application, per event, per year.

  • If the event is for fundraising please attach a small outline/budget detailing how the funds raised will be used.
  • Funding is not available for workforce development.
  • Your organisation must have an ABN number.
