British Columbia Vision Zero in Road Safety Grant Program
The British Columbia Vision Zero in Road Safety for Vulnerable Road Users Program (Vision Zero in Road Safety Program) provides grant funding to support local governments, Indigenous community governments and non-government organizations to advance evidence-informed road safety improvements that will result in a reduction in the number and severity vulnerable road user injuries.
This program aims to generate immediate and long-term injury reduction benefits for vulnerable road users in underserved communities, Indigenous communities, and small and remote communities. It also helps to advance the implementation of innovative, technology-driven, proven and low-cost countermeasures.
Stay tuned for updates regarding the 2023-2024 Vision Zero in Road Safety Grant Program, opening Fall 2023.
