Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program

About the program

The Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program (HVSPP) is an Australian Government initiative to fund infrastructure projects that improve productivity and safety outcomes of heavy vehicle operations across Australia.

The Australian Government has extended the HVSPP and will provide $40 million per year from the 2021 to 2022 financial year onwards. The commitment builds on the current $328 million investment from the 2013 to 2014 financial year to the 2020 to 2021 financial year.

Applying for Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program funding

The Heavy Vehicle Safety Productivity Program (HVSPP) is currently closed for applications.

Under the HVSPP, the Australian Government contributes up to 50% 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 and territory governments.
