WA opens Road Safety Community Grants Program

The Western Australian Road Safety Commission is making $350,000 available via the Road Trauma Trust Account to help communities deliver road safety events and projects, including National Road Safety Week, being held from May 5-12.

Under the Program there are three types of grants available:

  • community based events (Up to $5,000);
  • community based projects (Up to $25,000); and
  • National Road Safety Week 2024 events and yellow lighting activations (up to $5,000).

Previously, grants have been distributed to a range of community organisations including local government, P&Cs, clubs, multicultural and sporting peak bodies, neighbourhood centres and not for profits.

WA Minister for Road Safety, David Michael, is encouraging organisations to apply.

“Reducing trauma on our roads is a community priority – we all need to work together to reduce road trauma.

“We need everyone to be aware of the importance of slowing down, wearing seatbelts and not being distracted.

“I encourage everyone to consider how they might make their communities safer, and look forward to hearing about new and innovative road safety ideas.”

The application is simple, with this round of grants closing on Friday, 8 March 2024.

To apply and see examples of successful past projects visit the Road Safety Commission’s Community Grants Portal.
