The community is where road safety really begins, which is why the Road Safety Commission is making $350,000 available via the Road Trauma Trust Account to help communities deliver road safety events and projects, including National Road Safety Week (5-12 May).

There are three types of available grants:

  • community based events (Up to $5,000);
  • community based projects (Up to $25,000); and
  • National Road Safety Week 2024 events and yellow lighting activations (up to $5,000).

Recently grants have gone to a variety of community organisations including local governments, P&Cs, clubs, multicultural and sporting peak bodies, neighbourhood centres and not for profits such as MSWA.

The application process is simple, but be quick as this round of grants closes on Friday, 8 March 2024.

Comments attributed to Road Safety Minister David Michael:

“Reducing trauma on our roads is a community priority – we all need to work together to reduce road trauma.

“We need everyone to be aware of the importance of slowing down, wearing seatbelts and not being distracted.

“I encourage everyone to consider how they might make their communities safer, and look forward to hearing about new and innovative road safety ideas.”
