The Crime Prevention Innovation Fund is part of the government’s Building Safer Communities Program. It offers grants for partnership projects that deliver and evaluate innovative community safety and crime prevention initiatives.
Crime prevention approaches are most effective when government partners with communities to understand and address issues that make some communities more vulnerable to crime and victimisation.
The Crime Prevention Innovation Fund will support projects that:
- test new approaches to addressing crime and community safety issues that focus on prevention or early intervention that are evidence-based and reflect promising practice
- actively build capability within the community to understand and address crime and community safety issues
- contribute to the evidence base of effective crime prevention practice.
