National Road Safety Action Grants Program - First Nations Road Safety Stream

Grant Closes: 5th of May 2024 - 11:30 pm Value: $20,000 to $1.5 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=26d9229f-3259-4dc6-bb98-80dd787e49bb

First Nations peoples bear a higher burden of road trauma, and are nearly three times more likely to die in road crashes than other Australians. In line with governments’ commitment to the National Agreement on Closing the Gap, the Australian Government will create partnerships with First Nations peoples, communities and organisations to jointly develop culturally appropriate countermeasures to close the gap for First Nations peoples by improving road safety outcomes.

This grant opportunity is open January 2024 to March 2024 to allow the department time to build trusted relationships with First Nations organisations and communities to co-design a culturally appropriate national approach to community-led road safety initiatives.

The aim of this funding stream is to fund projects that will deliver local solutions for First Nations communities, and also support culturally relevant road safety messaging. Activities could include, but are not limited to, improving access to culturally appropriate road safety education, young driver training activities, support for First Nations peoples to obtain a driver’s licence, community group activities that improve road safety outcomes or education campaigns with relevant road
safety messages. Subject to consultation, the government intends these projects will:

  • ▪ improve access to road safety education and awareness for First Nations peoples
  • ▪ assist government to understand road safety priorities in First Nations communities and tailor solutions to match.
