Victorian councils have until Monday 25 September to apply for grants of up to $250,000 for the development of public safety and security infrastructure to improve community safety and confidence in public places.

The grants will support projects using good urban design and technology, including CCTV and lighting, to help improve community safety, security and confidence in public places.

Councils can also apply for funding on behalf of community organisations that own or manage facilities that are widely used and freely accessible to all members of the local community.

An information forum and webinar was held in early August to provide tips to improve project proposals, and outline current best practice for addressing community safety issues through public infrastructure design. Watch videos of the presentations and download the slides from our website.

The grants are part of the Victorian Government’s Community Crime Prevention Program which helps promote community safety and prevent crime in communities across Victoria.

Applications close at 4pm on Monday 25 September 2017. Late applications cannot be submitted. More information can be found on the Public Safety Infrastructure Fund grants page.
