KARTING AUSTRALIA’S SAFETY GRANTS PROGRAM
The Karting Australia (“KA”) Safety Grants Program (“Grants Program”) is a program that is designed to assist Clubs that are affiliated with an Ordinary Member (“State Association”) of KA and Ordinary Members to improve or enhance the level of safety infrastructure at Race Tracks (“Track”) that are licensed by KA.
Tips to maximise benefit for your Club from the KA Safety Grants program:
- Safety Grants are focused on racetrack items for example catch traps, barriers, buffers and signalling lights.
- The grant could be for new items that the Club would like to install or to upgrade existing items, repair / replacement of existing items or to rectify an ongoing problem that impacts the safety of your track.
- Any Club can only successfully attain a grant every two years – this means that if your club is in a financial position to do so, you will gain more benefit now for the Club overall if you are able to match the full $10K value of the grant when you apply for the grant.
- Clubs can apply for both a Safety Grant and a Track Development Fund contribution at the same time. That way, the TDF provides an interest free loan that the club can use to match or exceed the Safety Grant contribution, by doing this, your Club could get a larger project done by maximising the assistance available from both Karting Australia programs.
- Remember that “in kind” contributions can be allowed for in your Grant application, including Club labour (valued at no more than $15 per hour) and this may assist Clubs in getting all the work done that the Club would like to do.
- The Grants are available to help you improve your Club’s track safety, every time a Club is able to do so, the benefit applies to the sport overall as well as each individual Club, Karting Australia are here to assist you to get the most out of the Safety Grants for your Club.
