Grants for safer com­mu­nity

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

GRANTS are now avail­able to de­velop and im­ple­ment projects that im­prove road safety or help re­duce crime and fear of crime across the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett re­gion.

The Queens­land Po­lice Ser­vice has joined forces with Sun­corp In­sur­ance to cre­ate a safer en­vi­ron­ment in 2014 by fund­ing the fourth round of Safer Queens­land Com­mu­nity Grants.

Com­mu­nity groups, not-for-prof­its and po­lice through­out the re­gion are en­cour­aged to ap­ply for the grants of be­tween $1000 and $10,000 be­fore July 31.

In the past three years, the Safer Queens­land Com­mu­nity Grants pro­gram has funded a wide range of hugely ben­e­fi­cial crime preven­tion and road safety projects in re­gional com­mu­ni­ties. These have in­cluded aware­ness and ed­u­ca­tion cam­paigns ad­dress­ing youth vi­o­lence, drink driv­ing, home and property safety, as well as school and com­mu­nity driv­ing ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams.
