Traffic Safety Fund Grants Approved For 50 Communities Across Saskatchewan

Released on June 29, 2020

Road safety improvements are coming to 50 communities across Saskatchewan, courtesy of $550,000 in grants from the Provincial Traffic Safety Fund.

A total of 52 projects have been approved, with grants ranging from $2,320 to $57,750.  These include digital speed display signs and other speed management projects, pedestrian crossing signals, school zone beacons and additional street lights.

“It’s great to once again see so many are taking the initiative to reduce traffic collisions, injuries and fatalities in their communities, and I’m pleased that the Traffic Safety Fund is able to help them reach their goals,” Minister Responsible for SGI Joe Hargrave said.  “I want to congratulate the successful applicants and encourage others to apply for these grants.  Safer roads benefit everyone in our province.”

Provincial Traffic Safety Fund grants are awarded twice annually, using a portion of the proceeds from photo speed enforcement (PSE).  With the latest round of grants, there have now been a total of 127 projects awarded totalling more than $1.5 million in funding.

The PSE Committee will start accepting applications for the next round of Traffic Safety Fund grants on July 1.  The deadline for applications is September 24.  Application information can be found at www.sgi.sk.ca/community-grants-programs

Applications are evaluated by the PSE Committee, which is made up of representatives from the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association, the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities, the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, the Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure, and SGI.  Applications for traffic safety grants must focus on priority areas ranging from impaired and distracted driving to occupant protection and intersection safety.

Applicants must include a well-defined action plan, as well as specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and timely traffic safety objectives.
