Community Grants

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.

Applications must be received at least three months prior to the event and are assessed bi-monthly. Applications close on the last Friday of February, April, June, August, October and December at 5.00pm.

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. The amount funded is based on the Committee’s assessment of the application.

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).

Please note there is trialling of a new online application for Community Grants and welcome applicant feedback. For any assistance with your application or grant queries, contact the Grants Officer on 1300 999 772 or grants@rsc.wa.gov.au.

A PDF document link highlighting the requirements for the operation of RPAS within this airspace is listed below.

If you operate a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System please take note of the restrictions and requirements.
