Safer Communities Fund – Round 6 – Early Intervention Grants


This round of the Safer Communities Fund targets organisations with demonstrated experience in providing early intervention activities to youth at high risk to prevent them from engaging in criminal activity or anti-social behaviour.

There is approximately $20 million available.

The objectives of this grant opportunity are to:

  • contribute to the preservation of the safety of Australians through
    funding local crime prevention activities that address anti-social
    behaviour by youth at high risk
  • help marginalised youth aged 12-24 at high risk to develop life
    skills, including through educational and vocational skills to prevent
    them from becoming entrenched in the criminal justice system and to
    promote inclusion and build community resilience.


Eligible activities must directly relate to the project and involve youth engagement activities aimed at crime prevention. 

Grants available are between $200,000 and $1.5 million. The grant amount will be up to 100% of eligible project costs.

You must complete your project by 30 April 2024.


Applications close 5pm, 5th August 2021.
