The third round of the NSW Community Safety Fund is now opening. The program provides funding for community safety initiatives which will reduce crime and stamp out anti-social behaviour. Applications for up to $250,000 are invited for innovative projects designed to prevent crime and fear of crime and help people feel safe and proud of their community.

The NSW Department of Justice is administering this significant grants program for local communities across NSW. This is the third year of the grant program which provides $10 million to local communities over four years to improve community safety across NSW.

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.

The Department encourages applications for projects which aim to improve community safety in regional areas of NSW.

Closing date: 20 December 2017, 5.00pm
