Community Road Safety Grants Program

Our Community Road Safety Grants Program provides up to $1.5 million in funding to empower local communities to prevent serious injuries and reduce the number of lives lost on Victoria’s roads.

Making change at a community level

We know localised community action is pivotal in reducing the number of lives lost and serious injuries on our roads. 

This grant program aims to prevent and reduce these harms by providing funding for community road safety education programs that influence road users to become aware, understand and make safe decisions.

What funding is available?

We have several programs available as part of this grant program. Each program has allocated funding amounts, read our Community Road Safety Grants Program 2023/2024 Program Guidelines [PDF 1.7Mb] for more details.
