The latest round of grants to help community-based groups, schools and local government improve road safety have opened today.
Minister for Main Roads and Road Safety Mark Bailey says grass-roots groups would have until the 26 May to submit their applications for round six of the Queensland Government’s Community Road Safety Grants.
“These grants provide an opportunity for local groups to address local issues and make a real difference to the safety of pedestrians and road users.”
Grants are valued up to $20,000 for short-term, small-scale road safety projects and open for community-based groups to apply.
They can also apply for funding of up to three years to deliver road safety education programs.
Last year the road safety grants were expanded to include senior school road safety.
