The Koori Youth Crime Prevention Grants program acknowledges that Koori young people have disproportionately high rates of disadvantage and are significantly over-represented in the criminal justice system.
In 2016-17, $1.5 million in grants funding was allocated to 25 Koori youth crime prevention projects. These grants were overseen by the Department of Justice and Community Safety’s Koori Justice Unit and coordinated by nine Regional Aboriginal Justice Advisory Committees.
Funding for this program concluded in June 2019.
These projects delivered a range of early intervention, prevention and diversion programs. A full list of the projects which received funding is available below.
