Closing date extended for Safer Streets Program

Thursday, 11 February 2016

Local government and not-for-profit organisations still have time to apply for funding for new safety and crime prevention initiatives.

The application deadline for Round 2 of the Safer Streets Program has been extended until March 2.

Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt said the Federal Government would invest up to $29.4 million in individual grants to contribute to greater community safety and resilience across the electorate.

“The program is already working to improve community safety across Australia by preventing, deterring and detecting crime and antisocial behaviour,” he said.

The Safer Streets Program uses proceeds of crime – confiscated from criminals – to fund these crime prevention projects.
