New funding for heavy vehicle safety

Councils are invited to apply for new federal funding through the Heavy Vehicle Safety Initiative (HVSI) program, run by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator. 

The Australian Government has committed $4 million towards Round 8 of HVSI funding for new projects that will help support a safer heavy vehicle industry. 

Project submissions must address the themes of safer drivers, vehicles or road use by investing in driver or supply chain skills and training, vehicle safety technologies and improvements or heavy vehicle educational tools and resources. 

Submissions are open until 20 February 2023.
