All funded Project Grants must have an evaluation report and acquittal form completed within three months of the project being completed.

Please submit all evaluations via email to the Road Safety Community Grants Officer
grants@rsc.wa.gov.au

Evaluations are an important part of the Road Safety Grants Community Program in that they allow applicants to determine the impact of their project on the intended target audience and the overall success of the project in improving road safety.

Project evaluation reports are important in assisting the grants committee to:

  • evaluate the Community Road Safety Grants Program as a whole;

  • measure objectives and results based on the initial funding submission; and

  • assist other groups and organisations to deliver road safety projects that are effective.

If a project evaluation does not effectively demonstrate the impact of the project on the community, this is taken into consideration and may impact on the allocation of grant funds to similar projects in future.

If you would like to discuss your recent evaluation report please contact our Road Safety Community Grants Officer on 6552 0843 or email grants@rsc.wa.gov.au
