Local community groups are encouraged to put forward ideas to raise awareness on road safety across the state.
The Community Road Safety Grants program supports local community groups with ideas on ways to improve road safety in NSW communities.
The program will provide funding for ideas to help lower the state's road toll through the delivery of the local projects.
Local community groups are encouraged to participate by sharing their ideas.
The program will support funding under two categories:
- smaller grants of up to $5000 to support each idea
- larger grants of up to $30,000 to support more substantial projects.
Minister for Regional Roads and Transport Paul Toole said a number of initiatives have already been born out of the program.
“Almost 170 projects have been delivered across the state thanks to the Community Road Safety Grants program, including 30 projects in the last financial year,” Mr Toole said.
“This is about delivering programs that save lives. We want to do all we possibly can to lower the road toll around the state so that no one has to go through the pain of losing someone they love.”
