Round Three of Transport for NSW’s Centre for Road Safety’s Community Road Safety Grants Program is open. The Community Road Safety Grants Program gives community groups across NSW the opportunity to deliver local road safety projects that increase road safety awareness and support safer road use.

The community grants will create opportunities that:

  • Allow community organisations to develop road safety projects in their local areas in partnership with other local groups
  • Encourage safer road user behaviour and reduce road trauma
  • Contribute to achieving targets in the NSW Road Safety Strategy 2012–2021

Funding available

Grants of up to $5,000 are available for road safety projects that involve community engagement. These projects should improve road safety awareness in local communities.

Larger grants of up to $30,000 are also available. Detailed project plans will need to be provided for these grants, showing expenditure, project stages and time frames.


Transport for NSW will fund NSW community-based organisations. Applications for grants that may impact upon road infrastructure will be subject to approval by Roads and Maritime Services or local council before being granted.

Proposals need to demonstrate a road safety issue and propose an effective project concept to address the problem.

Successful applicants will be contacted in writing and offered funding based on their proposal. Unsuccessful applicants will also be advised of the outcome of the assessment and given feedback on their proposal.
