Community Grants Applications Now Open - National Road Safety Week 2020

Posted on: Monday, 23 December 2019 at 12:00:00 AM

The Road Safety Commission has opened applications for Local Governments, schools, service clubs, RoadWise Committees and community organisations to apply for a specialised grant round that provides funding up to $5000 each, to encourage the Western Australian community to participate and hold an event during National Road Safety Week (NRSW).

Supported by the State Government of Western Australia, including the Road Safety Commission, National Road Safety Week is an annual initiative created by the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group
 
Every year, more than 1200 people are killed and 35,000 seriously injured on Australian roads. In remembrance for those people who have lost their lives on our roads, and for the families left behind, Western Australian landmarks across the country regions and including Perth locations such as Yagan Square, Elizabeth Quay, the Bell Tower, Trafalgar Bridge and Council House, will light the night in yellow light across the week. Community events honour road traffic victims and ask the community to pledge to make the roads safer for everyone, "to drive so others survive".
 
Members of the RoadWise road safety network are invited to participate in National Road Safety Week by holding an event to raise awareness or light a local landmark/s or iconic building/s in yellow light. To achieve this, the opportunity to apply for a National Road Safety Week grant is now open.

Grant events must be held during National Road Safety Week (3 - 10 May 2020).
