Provincial Traffic Safety Fund Grant Program
The program provides up to $100,000 (per location) to municipalities and Indigenous land or territories. The goal of this fund is to stimulate and support local, collaborative action that will increase traffic safety awareness and reduce the frequency and severity of traffic injuries and fatalities within Saskatchewan.
The program began in 2019 and uses funds from photo speed enforcement tickets.
Up to $100,000 per location.
Note: If approved, 90% of the project funding will be provided up front, with the remaining funds (up to 10%) provided once the project is complete and the applicant submits their final report, including paid invoices.
Applicants must represent 1 of the following:
- a municipality (urban or rural)
- Indigenous land or territory
Smaller communities, such as organized hamlets, are also eligible to apply for grants. However, they must have a municipal corporate account to accept funding, if awarded. If they don’t have a municipal account, their municipality/ or Indigenous land/territory must apply on their behalf.
Applicants are required to provide a proposed budget for their project, which includes a breakdown between the grant amount and other financial or in-kind support. Vendor quotes outlining all project costs are also required.
- Direct project costs associated with the development, construction and delivery of projects, programs and public awareness. Costs such as phone, postage etc., along with costs for renting needed equipment or space are discouraged in favour of obtaining in-kind donations.
- Capital equipment costs only if necessary to the project and if renting or in-kind donations are not feasible or reasonable.
- Personnel costs such as contract fees, salaries and benefits necessary for development, implementation, delivery and evaluation of the project.
- Reasonable costs associated with completing the final project report should be included in the overall budget.
