Grants: Safer Communities Fund

This round of the Safer Communities Fund from the Australian Department of Home Affairs targets organisations with demonstrated experience in providing early intervention activities to youth at high risk to prevent them from engaging in criminal activity or anti-social behaviour.

Funding will be distributed to projects which contribute to the preservation of the safety of Australians through funding local crime prevention activities that address anti-social behaviour by youth at high risk, help marginalised youth aged 12-24 at high risk to develop life skills, and to promote inclusion and build community resilience.

Eligible activities must directly relate to the project and involve youth engagement activities aimed at crime prevention. Grants available are between $200,000 and $1.5 million. The grant amount will be up to 100% of eligible project costs.

Applications close 22 July. Find out more or apply.
