Graffiti Prevention Grants provide funding of up to $25,000 for councils to partner with their local communities to develop and deliver projects to prevent graffiti vandalism.
The types of projects that may be funded include, but are not limited to:
- environmental design initiatives to cover walls vulnerable to graffiti vandalism, such as vertical gardens and plants, murals and public art
- place-based activities that encourage space activation and community ownership to care for an area which is a graffiti hotspot
- graffiti removal activities and resources for use by project partners that form part of broader graffiti prevention efforts
- anti-graffiti education initiatives to engage the community, in particular young people.
Councils must partner with community stakeholders, which may include community, resident and sporting groups, schools, local police, small businesses and retailers and their associations, to develop and deliver local graffiti prevention and removal solutions.
