Community Road Safety Grants up for Grabs

Schools, P&Cs, Local Governments, PCYCs and clubs such as Rotary are being encouraged by Member for Warrego Ann Leahy to put up their hand for grants aimed at enhancing road safety across the regions.

road-safety-slogansMS Leahy says all such groups now have an opportunity to receive funding to implement and enhance the safety of road users in their local area through the Community Road Safety Grants (CRSG).

“Applicants are encouraged to put forward innovative initiatives that address present and future road safety concerns specific to their local area.”

“CRSG grants of up to $20 000 and can be used for short-term, small scale projects such as road safety education and training. Funding of up to three years is also available to deliver road safety education programs.”

The “One off” grants of up to a maximum $20 000 (exc. GST) for round 6 projects need to relate to one of the following initiatives:

• Early Childhood Road Safety Education (Kindergarten / Primary School),
• Bicycle Education (Kindergarten / Primary School),
• Motorcycle Safety Education and Awareness,
• Child Restraints Provision,
• Education and Awareness,
• Seatbelts (in rural and remote communities),
• Fatigue Education and Awareness,
• Pedestrian Education and Awareness,
• Older Driver Road Safety Education and Awareness,
• Variable Message Signs.

“Encouraging drivers to ‘Stop, Revive, Survive’ or a school-based youth road safety education program, CRSG is an opportunity to make the community a safer place.”
