Tasmanian Community Road Safety Grants Program 2015 - 2018

THE NEXT FUNDING ROUND opens on 1 February 2016 and closes on Friday 1 April 2016. Applications will be assessed shortly thereafter (no late applications will be accepted).

Tasmania's Community Road Safety Grants (CRSG) Program supports community involvement in addressing local road safety issues and promoting road safety within the framework of the Tasmanian Road Safety Strategy 2007 - 2016 (TRSS).

The grants program assists key road safety stakeholders and the community to develop and implement effective community road safety programs that contribute to positive and sustainable road safety outcomes.

Under the CRSG program local councils, community organisations, Schools and other service areas of the Department of Education and Tasmanian research institutions can apply for funding to undertake community road safety projects. Projects must be evidence-based, using research or best practice principles. They must address localised issues or be of road safety benefit, targeting a specific group or issue and align with the TRSS.

The types of projects that will be funded under this grants program include advertising campaigns and displays (including print and digital media, digital speed displays and variable message signs), education campaigns and programs targeting a range of road user types and behaviours and breath testing at major events preferably on a regional basis.

Working in partnership with other road safety stakeholders to deliver projects will be strongly encouraged under this grants program.
