New road safety grants available

Local governments are urged to apply for funding under the new National Road Safety Action Grants Program.

The Federal Government has committed $43.6 million over four years to the program to deliver infrastructure priorities outlined in the National Road Safety Strategy 2021-30 and National Road Safety Action Plan 2023-25.

The program offers funding across five key focus areas critical to reducing fatalities and serious injuries on our roads:

  1. Community Education and Awareness, including workplace road safety
  2. Vulnerable Road Users
  3. First Nations Road Safety
  4. Technology and Innovation
  5. Research and Data.

The program is open to a range of organisations including local, state and territory governments.

Applications for these first two streams are available until 25 August 2023.
