GRSP Road Safety Grants Programme 2020 – Round 17 for Organizations (Up to 120,000 CHF for Projects)

GRSP Road Safety Grants Programme 2020 – Round 17 for Organizations (Up to 120,000 CHF for Projects)

Deadline: June 8, 2020

The Global Road Safety Partnership is accepting Round 17 Proposals under the Road Safety Grants Programme. In Round 17, GRSP will accept applications for advocacy to strengthen road user policies as well as vehicle safety standards in eligible countries.

The Road Safety Grants Programme has supported organizations advocating for the adoption and implementation of evidence-based policies to protect road users since 2012 and improve vehicle safety standards since 2017. The grants programme is supported by the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety.

The Bloomberg Philanthropies Initiative for Global Road Safety focuses on improving and implementing evidence-based road safety policies (including laws, regulations, and standards) in a number of low- and middle-income countries. A number of evidence-based interventions aimed at reducing road traffic deaths and injuries are included in BIGRS. The Road Safety Grants Programme focuses exclusively on the passage and implementation of evidence-based policies which address key behavioural risk factors (speeding, drink driving, lack of seatbelt use, lack of child restraint use, or lack of helmet use) and vehicle safety standards.
