Applying for Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Programme Funding
The Heavy Vehicle Safety Productivity Programme is currently closed for applications.
Under the Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Programme, the Australian Government contributes up to 50 per cent of the total project cost. Projects are selected through a competitive, merit based process.
Proponents are encouraged to consult with industry and community more broadly on projects to ensure industry priorities and community views are considered in the development of proposals.
Payments for all successful projects are made through National Partnership Agreements to state/territory governments.
