ROUND THREE OF SAFER COMMUNITIES FUND NOW OPEN
Member for Bonner Ross Vasta has called on local councils and community organisations in Bonner to apply for a share of up to $1 million in funding through round three of the Safer Communities Fund.

The Safer Communities Fund is an Australian Government commitment to keep Australians safe and secure by enhancing the efforts of local councils and community organisations to address crime and antisocial behaviour.

Local councils and community organisations are invited to apply through the third round of funding for security enhancement projects, including for initiatives such as CCTV, bollards, lighting and crime prevention through environmental design initiatives.

As well as the infrastructure stream, the third round includes a separate early intervention stream for community organisations to deliver crime prevention or activity based youth engagement projects.

Mr Vasta said the two funding streams provide a robust example of the Government’s commitment to the safety and security of local communities.

“By empowering local organisations and councils to improve their security infrastructure, addressing crime and anti-social behaviour, the initiative increases perceptions of safety and cohesion, fostering viable and vibrant communities into the future,” Mr Vasta said.

Applications for the infrastructure stream open today and close on 25 September 2018. Information on how to apply for funding is available on the Australian Government’s Safer Communities Fund – Infrastructure Stream website at business.gov.au/safer-communities-fund, or by calling 13 28 46. 

Applications under the early intervention stream will open on 28 August 2018 and close on 25 September 2018.  Information on how to apply for funding is available on the Australian Government’s Safer Communities Fund – Early Intervention Stream website at business.gov.au/safer-communities-fund-early-intervention or by calling 13 28 46.
