I am pleased to announce that grant applications for round two of the Coalition Government’s Safer Communities Fund programme have now opened.
The Safer Communities Fund delivers on the Coalition’s ongoing commitment to keep Australians safe and secure.
Only safe communities can be strong and prosperous, and the best way to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour is to prevent it happening.
Local councils and community organisations are invited to apply through this open competitive round for funding for security enhancement projects, such as CCTV, bollards and lighting.
The Safer Communities Fund provides grants of up to $1 million for security infrastructure initiatives that address crime and anti-social behaviour, help reduce the fear of crime, increase feelings of safety, and contribute to the safety of communities that may be at risk of racial and/or religious intolerance.
Investment in security infrastructure at local crime hotspots will reduce fear of crime and contribute to greater community safety and resilience across Chisholm.
I strongly encourage Chisholm community groups to apply for a grant during round two of the Coalition Government’s Safer Communities Fund programme.
Further information on the Safer Communities Fund is available on the Australian Government’s Safer Communities Fund website at https://www.business.gov.au/Assistance/Safer-Communities-Fund or by calling 13 28 46. Applications close on 14 November 2017.
