NSW Community Safety Fund​ 2015/16​

The NSW Government has committed $10 million over four years for a Community Safety Fund to make NSW a safer place to live.   Administered by the NSW Department of Justice, the fund aims to reduce criminal and anti-social behaviour.

The NSW Community Safety Fund will provide grants up to $250,000 to non-government or not-for-profit organisations, community groups, chambers of commerce and businesses for community safety initiatives with a crime prevention focus including those that:

  • address local crime hot spots;
  • address anti-social behaviour in communities;
  • promote safe and inclusive use of public space; and,
  • promote collaborative approaches to community safety and crime reduction, prevention and detection initiatives.

Applications are now closed for the NSW Community Safety Fund.  Thank you to all the organisations that submitted an application to the 2016 round.

Over 200 applications were received and unfortunately a large number of high quality applications were unsuccessful on this occasion.   

The second round of funding will open in 2017 and the Department encourages unsuccessful organisations to consider submitting an application for the 2017 funding round.
