The Attorney-General's Department is providing funding through the Indigenous justice program for projects that aim to reduce adverse contact of Indigenous Australians with the criminal justice system. These projects may help to support safer communities by reducing Indigenous offending, and reduce Indigenous victimisation and incarceration.
Projects that will be considered for funding must demonstrate that they will result in a measurable reduction in the rates of offending or recidivism by Indigenous people. Projects that seek to reduce the risk of reoffending by Indigenous people who are currently in, or recently exited from, the criminal justice system are a high priority under the Indigenous justice program. Projects that target Indigenous victims of crime who are now 'at risk' of offending may also be considered.
Applications can be completed online and close 15 February 2013.
