Grants and subsidies

You or your organisation may be eligible to apply for a Transport and Main Roads grant or subsidy.

Current grants

  • Community road safety grants

    The Queensland Government offers funding to community groups for projects that address road safety issues in support of the Queensland Road Safety Strategy 2015–2021 strategic objectives and associated action plan.

    The grants aim to:

    • provide opportunities for community organisations to deliver local road safety initiatives with a road safety and educational benefit
    • drive a fundamental culture change and attitude to road safety in local communities
    • encourage innovative new ideas that address current and future local road safety issues.

  • School Bus Upgrade Scheme
    This grant helps accelerate the introduction of rollover–compliant buses into the Queensland school bus fleet. It is for school bus operators contracted to the Department of Transport and Main Roads. This assists with the purchase of new buses or buses that are up to 10 years old.

For information on other available grants, visit the Queensland Government grants website.
