The State Government's Residents Win road safety grants program is now open for applications.
Residents Win aims to support local road safety projects in partnership with schools, councils and community groups and to encourage projects that help residents create safer local roads and people-friendly streets.
Applicants don’t need have a solution in mind to apply, they just need to submit their road safety issue. Applications can be lodged via a simple online Expression of Interest on the Residents Win website.
The evaluation criteria will prioritise projects that best satisfy the following objectives:
Residents Win adopts a partnership approach to get people and local communities involved in the important area of road safety, as communities often have the best knowledge about what solutions are needed to improve road safety in their area.
If a community identifies a project that will deliver important road safety outcomes, they can apply to the State Government to provide 50 per cent of the project’s costs.
Grant applicants will also be offered support and tools to help them engage their wider community and they will receive help with collecting data to monitor the progress of their project.
The State Government has committed $2 million over four years in grant funding for Residents Win.
