The Community Crime Prevention Program supports local crime prevention initiatives. Local crime prevention initiatives can help increase community safety and improve community confidence in the safety of local areas.
The Community Crime Prevention Program includes a number of Grant Programs.
These grants provide funding of up to $10,000 for communities in Victoria to implement locally based crime prevention projects.
These grants provide funding of up to $25,000 to councils to partner with local communities across Victoria to develop and deliver local solutions to graffiti.
These grants provide councils with funding of up to $250,000 for the development of public safety and security infrastructure to improve community safety and confidence in public places.
These grants support primary prevention and early intervention focused partnership projects across community service organisations and local government to reduce violence against women and their children.
The place-based targeted grants will support evidence-based or promising practice approaches to addressing local community safety issues, particularly those addressing youth or other particularly vulnerable groups.
