Public Safety Infrastructure Fund now open

The Nationals Member for Lowan Emma Kealy is encouraging local councils to consider making an application for a Public Safety Infrastructure Fund grant.

Local Councils can apply for up to $250,000 to fund infrastructure that supports safer communities.

“This fund supports local councils and their communities implement practical projects to deter crime and promote safety,” Ms Kealy said.

Community safety projects that could receive funding include lighting upgrades, streetscape works and the installation of CCTV cameras in high-risk areas.

Ms Kealy said the Liberal-Nationals Coalition had a comprehensive crime prevention agenda and, when in government, introduced a dedicated portfolio of community safety initiatives.

“I am pleased to see that the Labor government is continuing some of these important initiatives,” Ms Kealy said.

“I encourage community groups to work with their local councils to identify possible projects and consider this funding opportunity.”

Applications for Public Safety Infrastructure Fund grants close on Friday, 2 August.
