Saving Lives Together

Community grants

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all projects or events proposed in new Road Safety Community Grants applications must have a  start date after 30 September 2020. Applications that do not meet the criteria will be not considered. Should the current COVID-19 situation be resolved before that date, applications and timelines will be reviewed. Event Grant funds will be disbursed only once restrictions on public gatherings due to the COVID-19 risk have been lifted. The Road Safety Commission thanks you for your understanding.

The Government of Western Australia has made funds available from the Road Trauma Trust Account (RTTA) for community initiatives that assist in promoting road safety messages across the state. The Road Safety Community Grant Program supports the development and implementation of sustainable projects and one-off community activities related to road safety.

Grant applications are assessed by the Road Safety Community Grants Committee which recommends a list for the Minister for Road Safety's consideration.

Road Safety Community Grants are available to support either community events or projects.

Event Grants encourage community groups to participate and include road safety activities within their event. Successful applicants will be supplied with a road safety message with relevant information and suggestions for supporting policies.

Project Grants are made available to groups to implement road safety projects. These are usually 12 month projects with a plan to be sustainable after funding. 

To apply for either an Event or a Project Grant please read the criteria and complete the application form (all applicants must have an ABN number).

For any assistance with your application or grant queries, contact the Grants Officer on 1300 999 772 or
