GRANT ALERT: Safer Road Users and Vehicles

Updated: Jul 12, 2022

Road Safety


The Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP), a sponsored project of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, manages and administers the Road Safety Grants Programme, which was launched in 2012 as part of the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety. The primary goal of the Road Safety Grants Program is to assist civil society and government groups in low- and middle-income countries in advocating for policy changes to close policy gaps that safeguard road users. It also helps organizations to ensure that evidence-based policies are implemented successfully.



Last date of application:-

9 June 2022



Purpose:-


The Global Road Safety Partnership, one of the implementing partners of the Bloomberg Philanthropies Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIGRS), manages the Road Safety Grants Program, which funds projects that develop and deliver high-impact, evidence-based road safety interventions to improve policy and implementation. BIGRS works in 15 low- and middle-income countries to improve and implement evidence-based road safety policies (such as laws, regulations, and standards). The Road Safety Grants Program has aided organisations that advocate for the development and implementation of evidence-based policies to safeguard road users since its beginnings. GRSP's scope was broadened in January 2017 to include advocacy for improved vehicle safety standards as well as road user policies in eligible nations.


Interventions:-


The Road Safety Grants Program assists groups that advocate for the development and implementation of evidence-based policies that protect road users and promote vehicle safety. The Road Safety Grants Program has been focused on the passage and implementation of evidence-based policies that address important behavioural risk factors since its establishment (speeding, drink driving, lack of seat-belt use, lack of child restraint use, or lack of helmet use). GRSP's scope was broadened in January 2017 to include advocacy for improved vehicle safety standards as well as road user policies in eligible nations.



Eligibility Criteria for NGOS:-


Applications addressing national level road safety policy reform and/or its implementation with comprehensive provisions on road user behavioural risk factors will be accepted from Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Uganda, Ukraine, and Vietnam.

Applications addressing national level vehicle safety regulations reform and/or vehicle safety regulations implementation will only be accepted from Mexico.

Given the prevailing situation in Ukraine, the process and timeline for grant selection and finalization may be adjusted as needed.

Governmental and non-governmental organizations in the nominated countries can apply for grants within the following parameters:

• Governmental organizations with relevant authority over road safety policy and/or its implementation. Road police and military agencies are not eligible to apply.

• Non-governmental organizations (including but not limited to civil society organizations and educational institutions) with relevant advocacy experience on policy reform and/or its implementation

Additionally,

Applicants must be registered legal entities in the country of project delivery, capable of entering into contractual arrangements, receiving foreign funds, and assuming legal and financial obligations.
