Transport Access Regional Partnerships (TARP) Grants UpcomingGrant Opens: 1st of July 2022 Closes: 30th of May 2023 or until expended Value: Unspecified Run By: Transport for NSW Further Information: https://www.transport.nsw.gov.au/operations/community-transport-operators/transport-access-regional-partnerships-tarp-grants-program

The Transport Access Regional Partnerships (TARP) Grants Program has small scale funding available to support initiatives to improve services and outcomes for sections of the community that need improved transport.

TARP provides funding for people who are affected by specific circumstances that leave them with limited or no access to private transport. The program supports initiatives to improve services and outcomes for transport disadvantaged groups in rural and regional community.

If you find a gap in services to a community or a group of people, contact your local Senior Manager who can provide information about alternative services that may solve the problem. If no alternative service exists, the project or initiative may fit the TARP program funding.

The following is considered when deciding whether or not an initiative will be included in the TARP program:

  • Funding for projects is available on a trial or ‘seeding’ basis i.e. recurrent funding is not available through this program.
  • In most cases, funded projects will need to demonstrate they can become self-sustaining.
  • Projects should aim to make better use of existing transport resources.
  • Consideration will be given to projects that provide information, transport related capacity building, subsidies or trial services.
  • The program cannot fund the purchase of vehicles.

All Local Government Areas in the Northern Inland are eligible. Partnerships with other organisations are encouraged - for example initiatives that include state agencies, local councils, transport operators and/or community organisations.

Eligible organisations include:

  • non-profit community based organisations
  • incorporated associations
  • local councils
  • statutory agencies
  • current Australian Business Number (ABN) holders

  • Develop, implement and evaluate evidence-based projects aimed at influencing behaviour to improve road safety in local communities
  • Promote, encourage and support the adoption the ‘Safe System’ approach to road safety and integrate this within the strategic planning framework for local councils i.e work with engineers to promote safe system initiatives and treatments
  • Facilitate the involvement of local businesses, other government agencies and community groups/clubs in community road safety

Co-funding is available for approved councils to:

  • Employ an RSO (see Section 6) whose tasks will include applying for road safety project funding (up to the amount approved by TfNSW)
  • Support road safety projects (see Section 5) to address identified road safety issues in the LGA (up to the amount approved by TfNSW).

The Local Government Road Safety Program provides:

  • Professional support for local councils to address local road safety issues
  • Funding to support a dedicated behavioural road safety role to your LGA
  • Project funding for behavioural and safer system road safety projects

Councils choosing not to employ an RSO can apply for road safety project funding of up to 50 per cent of the cost of the project. This could include a HR component for the cost of personnel to plan and deliver the project.
