Crime Prevention Minister, Andrew McIntosh, has announced funding of almost $3 million for community grants under the Community crime prevention program and Victorian Aboriginal Justice Agreement. Minister McIntosh said that the funding would empower local Koori communities to develop programs to strengthen community safety across Victoria (Vic), which is one of the government's highest priorities.
Funding of $2.4 million for Koori community safety grants will provide funds for initiatives that prevent violence in Koori communities, particularly against women and children. Over a three-year period, four projects will be developed and delivered by local Koori communities to ensure that issues are addressed in a way that is culturally-relevant and appropriate.
The Department of Justice Vic is now calling for expressions of interest for the Koori community safety grants. Further information on applying can be found by visiting the Department of Justice Vic website, or contacting the Koori Justice Unit. The grant application period is open until 15 August 2012.
