2018 NSW Community Safety Fund

The NSW Department of Justice is administering significant grants program for local communities across NSW through the ‘Community Safety Fund’ to support local crime prevention projects.

Applications for up to $250,000 are invited for innovative projects designed to prevent crime and to help people feel safe and proud of their community.

Non-government organisations, community groups, NSW Councils, chambers of commerce and businesses across NSW can apply for funding for capital works/infrastructure and service delivery projects which will:

  • address local crime hot spots
  • address anti-social behaviour in communities
  • promote safer and inclusive use of public space; and
  • promote collaborative approaches to community safety, crime reduction, prevention and detection initiatives.

Applications for projects that aim to improve community safety in regional areas of NSW are encouraged particularly in disadvantaged, regional and remote areas.

Applications close at 5pm on Friday 10 August, 2018.
