Simon Corbell has announced he’s got pots of proceeds of crime cash sitting around waiting for your good ideas on how to spend it to reduce crime:
Applications are now open for not-for-profit organisations and ACT Government agencies to receive a grant of up to $10,000 for crime prevention projects, Attorney-General, Simon Corbell, announced today.
“This is an exciting program where funds from the Confiscation of Criminal Assets Trust Fund are turned into grants for community groups and not-for-profit organisations to deliver projects that boost crime prevention and reduce the incidence of crimes like property damage and theft,” Mr Corbell said.
“The program has a total pool of $80,000 available for groups to apply for grants that are up to $10,000 in value, and will give an important head start to a project where funding might be the main obstacle to it getting off the ground.”
Grants of up to $10,000 are available to eligible organisations with projects that support the enforcement of territory laws, criminal justice activities or crime prevention; provide assistance to victims of crime; or work towards the prevention of drug abuse or the rehabilitation of drug users.
Eligible applicants include not-for-profit organisations and ACT Government agencies, including ACT Policing.
Applications close on 29 April. You can find the forms on the JACS website.
