Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, Marise Payne has called on community organisations and Blue Mountains City Council in Macquarie to apply for a share of up to $1 million in funding through the Safer Communities Fund.

The Safer Communities Fund is an Australian Government commitment to keep Australians safe and secure by enhancing the efforts of local councils and community organisations to address crime and antisocial behaviour.

The closing date for applications for the latest round of Safer Communities funding is looming. Local councils and community organisations have until September 25 to apply for funding. Minister for Home Affairs, the Hon Peter Dutton MP, has announced that grant applications for round three of the Safer Communities Fund are now open.

“Local councils and community organisation are invited to apply through the third round of funding for security enhancement projects, including for initiatives such as CCTV, bollards, lighting and crime prevention through environmental design initiatives,” Minister Dutton said.

Senator Payne said the funding program was a robust example of the government’s commitment to the safety and security of local communities.

“The Morrison Government is committed to the security and safety of all Australians,” Senator Payne said.

“By empowering community organisations and councils to improve their security infrastructure and anti-social behaviour programs, we are further able to crack down on local crime and anti-social behaviour hotspots.”

“I was very pleased to visit Leura again and see the new CCTV network at the Mall where the success of the Fund in keeping Leura safe was confirmed by local business owners and community members.”

Information on how to apply for funding is available on the Australian Government’s Safer Communities Fund – Infrastructure Stream website, or by calling 13 28 46.
