Safer Communities Fund - Round Five

Applications are now open for round five of the Safer Communities Fund, with communities across Australia set to share in up to $55.1 million to boost public safety and security.

The Safer Communities Fund provides grants to address crime and anti-social behaviour through the implementation of crime prevention and security initiatives, such as CCTV and lighting.

Round five builds on round four and targets schools, pre-schools, places of religious worship, local councils and community organisations to help protect those who may be at risk of attack, harassment or violence stemming from racial or religious intolerance. 

Round five delivers on two 2019 Federal Election commitments by boosting the fund by $20 million and allocating $4 million specifically to the Northern Territory. 

Grant amounts can range from $10,000 to $500,000 per application with details at

Applications close 10 December 2019.
