Community Road Safety

Community Road Safety Grants Program

Applications open 1 February and close 22 March 2019.

The Community Road Safety Grants (CRSG) Program supports community involvement in addressing local road safety issues and promoting road safety within the framework of the Towards Zero – Tasmanian Road Safety Strategy 2017-2026 (Towards Zero Strategy).

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 Towards Zero Strategy.

The types of projects that will be funded under this grants program include advertising campaigns, displays on a road safety topic, education campaigns, programs targeting a range of road user types and behaviour, road safety related research and workshops with a road safety focus.

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

Grants funding is available from $500 to $35 000. Larger projects will be considered at the discretion of the funding panel.

The CRSG Guidelines (582KB PDF) contain information for applicants including project eligibility and assessment criteria. The Guidelines should be read before submitting an application.
