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
