Community Road Safety Grants closing 23 July 2017 (NSW)

Community Road Safety Grants

Round three applications are now open

Round three of the Community Road Safety Grants Program are open until Sunday 23 July 2017. Applications will be assessed by a panel of representatives from Transport for NSW, Roads and Maritime and the NSW education sectors.

Successful applicants will be contacted in writing and offered funding based on their proposal. Unsuccessful applicants will also be advised of the outcome of the assessment and given feedback on their proposal.

Local road safety projects

The NSW Road Safety Strategy 2012-21 sets a target to reduce annual road deaths and serious injuries by at least 30 percent by 2021.

The Community Road Safety Grants Program allows community groups across NSW the opportunity to deliver local safety projects. Locally run projects will help increase road safety awareness and support safer road use. Community grants will create opportunities that:

  • Allow community organisations to develop road safety projects in their local areas in partnership with other local groups
  • Encourage safer road user behaviour and reduce road trauma
  • Contribute to achieving targets in the NSW Road Safety Strategy 2012-2021


Grants of up to $5000 are available for road safety projects that involve community engagement. These projects should improve road safety awareness in local communities.

Larger grants of up to $30,000 are also available. Detailed project plans will need to be provided for these grants, showing expenditure, project stages and time frames.
