TAC Small Grants Program

TAC Small Grants Program

The TAC (Transport Accident Commission) Small Grants Program aims to maximize the independence and improve the lives of people with an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) and/or Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) by offering grants to innovative and user led projects within the Victorian Community.

 

Background

The TAC believes social investment contributes to the achievement of the TAC’s strategic priorities and helps to build a stronger Victorian community in which to live and work.

The TAC’s strategic outcomes are the elimination of road deaths and serious injuries and getting clients’ lives back on track. Through the TAC 2020 strategy our clients will receive the right treatment, at the right time and we will work with the sector to drive innovation in service delivery.
