The new money will support the following grant programs: The Community Safety Fund – grants of up to $10,000 for community groups and councils for practical crime prevention projects; Public Safety Infrastructure Fund – larger grants of up to $250,000 for councils to use urban design and technology such as CCTV and lighting to improve safety in public places; Graffiti Prevention Grants – grants of up to $25,000 for councils to partner with their local communities to prevent graffiti vandalis; New place-based grants for crime hotspots – piloting new grants for places of high crime and disadvantage, with an emphasis on projects involving youth, Koori and culturally and linguistically diverse groups.
