Safer streets grants on of­fer

Isis Town and Country - - News -

LO­CAL govern­ment and not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions still have time to ap­ply for fund­ing for new safety and crime preven­tion ini­tia­tives.

The ap­pli­ca­tion dead­line for Round 2 of the Safer Streets Pro­gram has been ex­tended un­til March 2.

Mem­ber for Hin­kler Keith Pitt said the Fed­eral Govern­ment would in­vest up to $29.4 mil­lion in in­di­vid­ual grants to con­trib­ute to greater com­mu­nity safety and re­silience across the elec­torate.

“The pro­gram is al­ready work­ing to im­prove com­mu­nity safety across Aus­tralia by pre­vent­ing, de­ter­ring and de­tect­ing crime and an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour,” he said.

The Safer Streets Pro­gram uses pro­ceeds of crime – con­fis­cated from crim­i­nals – to fund th­ese crime preven­tion projects.
