What is Community Road Safety Grants Program?

The VicRoads Community Road Safety Grants Program is an initiative which aims to empower local communities to prevent and reduce the number of lives lost and serious injuries on Victoria’s roads.
 

Objectives

VicRoads CRSGP has been developed to assist communities in preventing and reducing these adverse effects of road trauma. This is done through the notion of shared responsibility, engaging all road users and communities to be active in this space.

The outcomes targeted by this program are:

  • Local communities who embrace shared responsibility towards road safety.
  • Local communities who are educated in best practice road safety behaviours.
  • Local communities who demonstrate best practice road safety behaviours.
