How the grant process works

The online application process involves a short list of eligibility questions, so you can see if you are eligible before committing a lot of time to preparing your funding request.

Completed applications are first reviewed by the Grants Team, as well as the Road Safety Initiatives (RSI) Committee which consists of six trustees. All applications are considered very carefully against our grant criteria.

Applications that most closely align with our grant criteria are then put forward for recommendation to the Board for approval, with an answer usually being forthcoming within five to six months of the closing date for major grants, and sooner for smaller grants.
