Community Car and Coach Fund 2021-22

Overview

The Community Car and Coach Fund will help communities to purchase vehicles to provide local transport for access to essential services, connecting people to employment, education, health and wellbeing services, social and other support networks - particularly in Tasmania’s regional communities where other transport options may be more limited.

The Fund will support local solutions that provide direct transport support to disadvantaged Tasmanians or groups.

Organisations can apply for funding for a car, a minivan or a mini-bus to meet the needs of their community. The service offered by the applicant using the funded vehicle(s) will be at the applicant’s expense including the ongoing cost of the vehicle.

The Tasmanian Government is providing $500 000 to the Fund, to be administered as grants to successful applicants.
