Stream 1 - Strategic Planning
Activities may include:
- graffiti audit activity
- research and preparation of a graffiti management strategy
- community consultation costs
Stream 2 - Graffiti Prevention Activities
Activities may include:
- crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) initiatives to improve natural surveillance
- anti-graffiti coating or graffiti resistant materials
- place-based activities that encourage community care, ownership and use of an area which is a graffiti hotspot
- initiatives to cover walls vulnerable to graffiti vandalism such as vertical gardens and plants, murals and public art.
A more extensive list of eligible activities can be found in the guidelines .
