Community road safety grants now open!

The Queensland Government has a vision of zero road deaths and serious injuries. As part of achieving this vision, the Department of Transport and Main Roads opened the 2019 Round of Community Road Safety Grants on Sunday 5 May 2019.

The Community Road Safety Grants scheme embraces the position that road safety is everyone’s responsibility and is often best dealt with at a local level to ensure each community’s specific road safety needs are addressed.

The grants scheme is the perfect opportunity for community organisations to put their ideas into action to drive a fundamental culture change about road safety in their community.

Since commencement of the scheme, many terrific projects have been rolled out across Queensland. From introducing road safety awareness with kindergarten children north of Mackay, to road safety refresher sessions with the Gold Coast's senior population, they all add up to a collective improvement in road safety in Queensland.

The 2019 Round is offering funding up to a maximum of $20,000 for short-term, small scale projects across:

  • childhood road safety
  • bicycle education
  • road safety education
  • motorcycles
  • seatbelts (rural and remote communities)
  • fatigue
  • pedestrians
  • safer seniors.

Applications close midnight 7 June 2019.
