RAA Regional Safety Grants

2017 Regional Safety Grants

RAA’s Regional Safety Grants program will once again open for applications from Wednesday 1 March to 5pm Friday 31 March 2017. The fifth year of the Regional Safety Grants program reflects RAA’s continued desire to enhance safety and security in South Australia’s regional areas.

The Regional Safety Grants are available for community groups, not for profits and schools to implement a project, program or activity targeting local safety issues.

The total Grant pool is $50,000 and applications will be considered for projects from $500 up to the value of $5,000 including GST.

Examples of projects that would qualify for consideration include the following forms of safety:

  • Road
  • Child
  • School
  • Playground
  • Fire
  • Personal
  • Water
  • Community

If your organisation, club or community group has a safety related project or activity that requires funding, the RAA Regional Safety Grant may be able to help you achieve your goals.

Application Forms and Terms and Conditions are available below, on the right-hand sidebar of this page or at your local RAA store and all applications will be assessed on merit by a selection panel.

Should you have any questions regarding the Grants, please contact grants@raa.com.au or 08 8202 4711 Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm.
