Applying for funding

The Community Road Safety Grants Program will fund Victorian community based projects conducted by not-for-profit community groups that can show:

  • there is a specific road safety problem to address
  • they have an effective project idea to address it.

Individuals cannot apply for funding and there are some rules about the organisations that can apply:

  • You will need to show your organisation is financially viable. This means your organisation should be an incorporated body and your application should include your organisation's audited financial statements.
  • You will be expected to partner with other community groups, such as registered community road safety groups or local councils, to enable your road safety project to draw on a broad range of local knowledge. This means you'll need to contact other groups, negotiate roles, and agree on a project and the funding arrangements before submitting your application.

Some groups will not be funded, including commercial organisations (e.g. businesses, for-profit organisations and consultants) or those promoting activities that are inconsistent with best practice road safety. State Government
organisations are not eligible, although local government and school projects may be funded.
