Community Road Safety Grants open again

Written by

Parents and Friends associations, in partnership with schools, are invited to submit an application in the 2018 of the Queensland Government’s Community Road Safety Grants scheme.

Funding will be available in the next financial year through the grants scheme to help schools and not-for-profit community groups to improve road safety in their local area.

The scheme includes two funding streams:

  • Community Road Safety Project grants worth up to $20,000 to fund short-term, small scale projects to target road safety.  This year the Department will prioritise projects that focus on motorcycle safety, seatbelts, fatigue and older drivers.

  • Community Road Safety Program Grants to fund longer term programs of up to three years to deliver road safety education. for senior students or to support pre-learner or novice drivers to obtain their licences.

Since its inception in 2013, the Community Road Safety Grants Program has provided over $13.5 million to community groups across Queensland to deliver a broad range of activities such as road safety and bicycle education, child restraint resources and education, heavy vehicle fatigue initiatives and learner driver mentoring programs for young drivers.

Some of the education initiatives developed through this grant funding include:

  • Bicycle education sessions for school students
  • Young driver education programs
  • Road safety education programs for school students
  • Child restraint resources and education programs, including training in regional communities
  • Driver mentor programs to assist learners, with-out access to support, to help them achieve 100 hours on-road supervised driving

Applications for the 2018 Round of funding close on 25th May 2018. More information about the grants program, go to https://www.qld.gov.au/community/community-organisations-volunteering/funding-grants-resources/community-road-safety-grants
