Apply Now for Community Safety Grants

Thursday 25 June 2015

The Nationals Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh is encouraging local councils and

community groups to apply for Victorian Government community safety grants.

“This fund supports local communities in implementing practical projects to deter crime and

promote safety,” Mr Walsh said.

Community safety projects come in many different forms, from installing security features to

undertaking community awareness activities.

Mr Walsh said the Liberal-Nationals Coalition had a comprehensive crime prevention agenda

and when in government introduced a dedicated portfolio of community safety initiatives.

“The Community Crime Prevention Program which is currently open was introduced by the

Coaltion  to facilitate  local solutions for local problems,” he said.

“It is a tremendous grassroots program and I am pleased to see that that labor government

has committed to it,” Mr Walsh said.

Grants of up to $10,000 are available for community groups and councils to support local

crime prevention initiatives.

Applications for Community Safety Fund grants close at 4pm on 10 July.

Also on offer is the Public Safety Infrastructure Fund grants program with applications closing

on Friday 21 August.

This scheme is open to local councils and can fund infrastructure upgrades to a maximum of

$250,000.
