UP TO $30,000 TO KEEP LOCALS SAFE

14 May 2018

Local communities know their local streets and roads like the back of their hand. To harness this knowledge, Member for Barwon, Kevin Humphries along with the NSW Government, is encouraging communities to identify ways to promote safety in their local area.

Applications are now open for the Community Road Safety Grants Program, with up to $30,000 available for local initiatives ranging from young driver education programs, radio campaigns to workshops for seniors.

KEY POINTS:
Two categories of grants are available: 

  • Smaller projects: up to $5,000 
  • More substantial projects: up to $30,000

Round 4 applications are open until Sunday 10 June 2018.

Kevin Humphries said that the key to identifying and addressing local road safety issues is working with communities themselves.

“We know the value of local knowledge, so I encourage all community groups to put forward ideas to help bring their local road toll Towards Zero. 

“Last year, 392 people lost their lives on our roads. These are not just numbers, they are real people lost to their families forever,” Kevin Humphries said.

The NSW Government is awarding up to $1.6 million in grants over four years, with funding made available through the Community Road Safety Fund. Since 2015, the Government has invested in 76 local community road safety initiatives across the state.
