Towards Zero Community Grants program now open

The Nationals Member for Lowan Emma Kealy is encouraging community groups, schools and Councils across Lowan to apply for grants of up to $30,000 to boost road safety in their local area.

“Local Councils, schools and community groups play a key role in identifying and improving road safety issues in their local area,” Ms Kealy said.

“These grants provide the opportunity for local communities to show leadership in addressing road safety issues that affect their daily lives.”

Examples of projects previously funded under the program include:

- Mooney Valley Council: $14,117 to run a youth bicycle road safety program to address local concerns about the safety of students on their travels to and from school
- Gippsland Motorcycle Club: $28,850 to pilot a mentor program to support newly licensed and returning riders to gain or improve their skills.

Applications are now open and close on 8 May.

Information on the program including how to apply is available at

“Road safety is everyone’s responsibility and I encourage local communities to take advantage of this opportunity to apply for funding to address a road safety issue that they have identified in their local area,” Ms Kealy said.
