Community Safety Fund Grants

The 2017 round of the Victorian Government’s Community Safety Fund grants has just opened for applications.

Local community groups and Victorian councils are invited to apply for grants of up to $10,000 (GST excl.) to support local crime prevention initiatives.

Project ideas that may be eligible for funding include:

  • Improving security at community facilities by installing security equipment such as locks, vandal-proof security lighting, security screens, alarms (without video surveillance), fencing and gates.
  • Engaging the community in small-scale, physical improvements to make public spaces safer, such as work to improve streetscapes, parks and reserves.
  • Education and awareness initiatives targeting theft of and from motor vehicles, theft of personal property in public places, and residential and retail burglary.

Applications close at 4.00pm on Friday 14 July 2017. Late applications cannot be submitted.

Program information, including the application guidelines, examples of previously funded projects and links to the online application form can be found at
