The Graffiti Prevention Grants provide funding for Victorian councils to support effective graffiti management and prevention initiatives in partnership with community stakeholders.
Councils can now apply for grants of up to $30,000 through the program under one of two streams, with a new stream introduced this year to support the development of comprehensive graffiti management strategies.
This will enable councils and their communities to better understand graffiti vandalism within the municipality and how to respond.
Activities which may be eligible for funding under ‘Stream 1 – Strategic planning’ include graffiti audits, research and preparation of a graffiti management strategy and community consultation costs.
Projects which may be eligible for funding under ‘Stream 2 – Graffiti prevention activities’ include those to improve natural surveillance or protect vulnerable graffiti hotspots, graffiti removal, anti-graffiti coating and place-based activities encouraging greater community ownership of an area.
Councils may submit multiple applications for funding under both streams.
Program information, including guidelines, examples of previously funded projects and links to the online application form can be found on our Graffiti Prevention Grants page.
Applications close 4.00pm on Friday 26 April 2019. Late applications cannot be submitted.
