The Community Safety Fund provides grants of up to $10,000 for community groups and councils to implement locally-based, practical crime prevention initiatives.

The grants support projects such as:

  • security equipment for community facilities
  • small-scale, physical improvements and upgrades to public spaces to improve community perceptions of safety and use of these areas
  • targeted crime prevention education and awareness activities.

An individual project may include multiple approaches to a crime prevention issue.

Grant funding is available under two streams: 

  • Improving safety and security
  • targeted crime prevention education and awareness initiatives.
