Funding to fight antisocial behaviour
Local government authorities and not-for-profit organisations in the Mining and Pastoral Region are encouraged to apply for Community Crime Prevention and State Graffiti funding to help curb crime.
Nationals Member for Mining and Pastoral Dave Grills said empowering communities was the most effective way to tackle antisocial behaviour. “I have been working with communities in places like the Kimberley and Goldfields to help develop effective local crime prevention initiatives,” he said.
The Community Crime Prevention Fund supports projects that work to address local crime issues across WA with grants of up to $25,000.
The State Graffiti Fund provides grants of up to $20,000 to support community projects that assist in the clean-up and prevention of graffiti vandalism.
Mr Grills said graffiti vandalism was a senseless crime that cost West Australians about $8 million a year to clean up.
