New round of grants available to fight graffiti

Police Minister Michelle Roberts announced a package of grants available for programs which tackle graffiti across the State.

Local governments and not-for profit organisations can apply for grants of up to $20,000 to implement initiatives which prevent, report and remove graffiti.

Projects which demonstrate the following crime prevention benefits will be given priority:

  • Encourage and support local communities to take responsibility for graffiti clean-up;
  • Provide sustainable local graffiti clean-up solutions;
  • Reduce opportunities for graffiti offending by looking at improved design options for graffiti hotspot locations;
  • Increase community awareness on reporting graffiti vandalism; and
  • Support projects which decrease the number of juveniles who come into contact with the justice system.

The $200,000 package has been allocated from the Community Safety and Crime Prevention Partnership Fund budget.
