FUNDING SAFER COMMUNITIES

MEMBER for Forrest Nola Marino has called on South West organisations and councils to apply for a share of up to $1 million in funding through the Safer Communities Fund.

Local councils and community organisations can apply for funding for security enhancement projects, including CCTV, bollards, lighting and crime prevention through environmental design initiatives.

Mrs Marino said this round also includes a separate early intervention stream for community organisations to deliver crime prevention or youth engagement projects.

Applications close on September 25.

Information on how to apply for funding is available at business.gov.au/safer-communities-fund.
