Project Grants

Project Grants were developed to provide funds to organisations and groups to develop and implement projects based on the Towards Zero 2008-2020, the State Government’s road safety strategy.

Overview

Grant amount:
The amount funded is based on the Road Safety Community Grants Committee’s assessment of the application.

Criteria:

  • Focus on one or more of the four cornerstones outlined in the recommended Towards Zero 2008-2020, the State Government’s road safety strategy;
  • Relate to current road safety research;
  • Demonstrate clear relevance to the target group;
  • Use an approach that has previously been successful in achieving road safety objectives;
  • Demonstrate widespread community support and participation;
  • Demonstrate sustainability;
  • Provide a contribution in cash or kind towards the project; and
  • Demonstrate a regional focus for maximum impact.

Invoicing and Funding:
If your grant application is successful you are required to: 

  • Complete a Creditor Creation Form and submit an invoice within one month of the notification of a successful grant application (the Creditor Creation Form will be sent to you if your application is successful).
  • Applicants will be required to sign a Declaration and Acceptance - Grant Terms and Conditions form within one month of the notification of a successful grant application.
  • All grant applications are exclusive of GST.

Evaluation Requirements:
A project evaluation report and a project acquittal form are to be submitted within three months of the project’s completion. Forms are available on this website.

If the project is for longer than six months it is a condition that the group complete an interim evaluation report every six months for the duration of the project, as well as submit a final evaluation report within three months of the completion of the project.

Due to the State Election earlier in the year grant applications are currently not being accepted and this page can then be updated when the first grants round for 2017-2018 is announced. There will be no grant round in August and there may not be one in October, depending on the timing of the budget announcement.

Application Documents

To apply for a project grant you will need to complete these forms:


 

Evaluation

All funded Project Grants must have an evaluation report and acquittal form completed within three months of the project being completed.

Evaluations are an important part of the Road Safety Community Grants Program in that they allow applicants to determine the impact of their project on the intended target audience and the overall success of the project in improving road safety.

Project evaluation reports are important in assisting the grants committee to:

  • evaluate the Community Road Safety Grants Program as a whole;
  • measure objectives and results based on the initial funding submission; and
  • assist other groups and organisations to deliver road safety projects that are effective.

If a project evaluation does not effectively demonstrate the impact of the project on the community, this is taken into consideration and may impact on the allocation of grant funds to similar projects in future.

Please submit all evaluations via email to the Road Safety Community Grants Officer at grants@rsc.wa.gov.au.
