Were very excited to announce that all schools participating in the Your Move program across WA now have access to $20,000 in Connecting Schools Grants to upgrade bike infrastructure or run bike education courses at their school, making it easier for kids to get to and from school more actively! 

The Department of Transport’s (DoT) 2018/19 Connecting Schools Grants have now been integrated into the Your Move program and are now accessible on the Rewards Shop of the website to make the grant process a whole lot easier. The 100% funded grants are between $750 - $5,000 and can be used by schools to fund bike parking, bike education, wayfinding signage and even bike repair stations.

Who can obtain a Connecting Schools Grant?

To be eligible, schools must be using the Your Move program to promote active travel to and from school and reach accreditation of Silver or higher to obtain a Connecting Schools Grant.

See the Connecting Schools resource page for more details

What types of grants are available?

There are three levels of grants and 18 different packages available in 2018/19. Your school’s accreditation level unlocks a corresponding level of grant. For example, if your school has reached Silver accreditation this will unlock the Small Grant valued at up to $750. If your school has reached Platinum accreditation, your school could apply for a Small, Medium or Large Grant.
