The Victorian Government is offering local councils across Victoria, Australia, the chance to receive up to $100,000 for projects focused on making local roads safer, through a Transport Accident Commission (TAC) grants program.

The program offers local councils the opportunity to apply for funding for a range of projects including:

  • Low-cost infrastructure treatments, which address cyclist or pedestrian road safety issues in a local community and are based on sound research or established road safety principles.
  • The trial of innovative treatments, including evaluations and safety infrastructure.
  • Analysis of pedestrian and cyclist road safety issues and risk factors which will provide the basis for potential road safety measures and design processes.

Information on the grant program, including dates, guidelines and how to apply can be found on the TAC website here.
