Applications are now open for Victorian councils, schools and not-for-profit organisations to receive State Government funding for road safety initiatives and education programs. 

Victorian Minister for Roads and Road Safety, Melissa Horne, has invited community organisations to apply for the 2024 $1.5 million Community Road Safety Grants Program which will deliver targeted education programs and road safety solutions in areas that need it most. 

The grants include education sessions which fall under the following road safety categories:

  • Safer cyclists
  • Safer pedestrians
  • Safer drivers and passengers
  • Safer motorcyclists
  • Safer vehicles
  • Local road safety innovation

In 2023, 94 organisations received funding to deliver more than 251 programs and projects across the state, ranging from Bike Education and Safe Routes to School for children, alcohol and other drugs, fatigue and distraction education, and programs that educate new Victorians on road safety.

This year’s grants program once again supports the Victorian Road Safety Strategy 2021-2030, which aims to halve road deaths and reduce serious injuries by 2030 and put Victoria on the path to eliminating road deaths by 2050.

Applications close on 6 March. 

Minister Horne said that road safety is all about people and communities. 

“That’s why localised community action is so important in eliminating death and serious injury on our roads,” Minister Horne said. 

“These targeted, community-driven projects will help deliver a positive road safety message and we encourage the Victorian community to get involved in the Community Road Safety Grants Program to help reduce road trauma.”
