Community Grants to Keep Victorians Safe From Crime

Nearly $50,000 has been awarded to support five local crime prevention projects under the latest round of the Victorian Government’s Community Safety Fund grants.

The Community Safety Fund provides up to $10,000 for councils and community groups across Victoria to help reduce local crime and improve community safety.

The latest round of grants support projects to improve security at community facilities, initiatives to make local public places safer and encourage more community use – as well as education and awareness programs to help prevent motor vehicle theft, residential and commercial burglaries.

Member for St Albans, Natalie Suleyman MP congratulated the Sunshine Business Association, Brimbank Bicycle Education Centre, St Albans Business Group Association and Brimbank City Council on being awarded nearly $50,000 to deliver their projects.

The Community Safety Fund is part of the Andrews Labor Government’s $19.4 million investment in the Community Crime Prevention Program aimed at tackling crime and its root causes.

These small grants can make a big difference in improving community safety and preventing crime in communities across St Albans.”
