Applications are open for up to $3 million in crime prevention grants, courtesy of the Andrews Labor Government’s Public Safety Infrastructure Fund (PSIF).

Councils can apply for up to $250,000 to fund infrastructure that supports safer communities.

Projects that could receive funding in the Eastern Victoria Region in the 2019–20 round include lighting upgrades, streetscape and other amenity improvements, or the installation of CCTV cameras in high-risk areas.

Since July 2015, the Labor Government has provided almost $11.8 million in PSIF grants to support 73 projects across the state.

The grants are part of the Labor Government’s Community Crime Prevention Program, which received $25 million over four years in the Victorian Budget 2018/19.

Councils have until 4pm on Friday, 2 August to apply for the new round of PSIF grants.

Applications must be submitted at
