21 February 2024

Victorian community groups and organisations can apply for a share of $600,000 Allan Labor Government funding to support projects improving road safety in their local communities.

Minister for Roads and Road Safety, Melissa Horne today announced the Transport Accident Commission’s 2024 TAC Road Safety Grant Program is open for applications.

The grants program supports community groups and organisations to develop and implement effective community-based road safety projects.

The program has two funding categories: Road Safety Support Grants of up to $50,000, and Road Safety Collaboration Grants of up to $150,000.

The Clontarf Foundation recently received a Road Safety Collaboration Grant for a project that aims to improve safety outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth by increasing access to the Graduated Licensing System through professional driving lessons and road safety education.

Victoria Walks also received a Collaboration Grant and will use the grant for a project to help understand community sentiment around safety in local streets, and ways to promote the development of road and street environments that support safe and active travel.

The TAC Road Safety Grant Program opens for applications today and will close on April 3, more information about the program can be found here - www.tac.vic.gov.au/about-the-tac/community/grants/road-safety-grant-programExternal Link

Quotes attributable to Minister for Roads and Road Safety Melissa Horne

“People living and working in communities are in the best position to identify road safety issues that are unique to their areas, and we want to support them to find solutions.”

“This program supports community groups to contribute to creating a safe environment for all road users and encourages a culture that prioritises road safety.”

Quote attributable to Transport Accident Commission CEO Tracey Slatter

“Supporting Victorian community groups and organisations to improve road safety isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach, which is why these grants are so important to addressing local issues.”
