If you have got an idea on how to educate our local community on road safety, you can fund it through a grant program that has now opened.

Applications for the 2021 Community Road Safety Grants are now open and will close on Friday, 9 April.
 
“What this program does is provide an opportunity for not-for-profit organisations to run a road safety project in our local community,” said Chris Whiting MP.

 

“That could be schools, parents and citizens and parents and friends' groups, local governments and community groups.
 
“This year the grants offer up to $20,000 to fund short-term, small scale road safety education and awareness initiatives across local Queensland communities.
 
“The Queensland Government has supported the community with these grants since 2013.

 

“Over this time, more than $21 million has been approved to fund road safety education and awareness initiatives,” said Chris Whiting MP.
