Community grants for safer, greener, more active travel

6 February 2013

Community Grants are now open for groups and organisations to deliver small-scale projects that promote safer, greener and  more active travel choices.

The grants, offered by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI), in partnership with the Motor Accident Commission (MAC), fund projects which can focus on improving road safety, encouraging people to cycle, walk or catch public transport, doing things locally or using the car smarter.

Road Safety Minister Michael O’Brien said the Department is now accepting applications from South Australian groups and organisations.

“We’re proud to support grassroots projects and initiatives that contribute positively towards the environment and develop a culture of road safety,” he said.

“Successful applicants will demonstrate a commitment to community engagement and will focus on achieving safer, greener and more active travel outcomes in their local area.
