Community Safety Infrastructure Grants available for local sporting clubs and non-profit community groups

Greater Shepparton sporting clubs and non-profit community groups are encouraged to apply for the Community Safety Infrastructure Grants delivered by the State Government.


The program offers grants between $25,000 and $500,000 to Victorian Councils and not-for-profit organisations that own or manage community facilities (including places of worship) to install public safety and security infrastructure.

The grants are part of the Government’s $2.7 billion Building Works package.

The objectives of the Community Safety Infrastructure Grants include:

  • Delivering employment opportunities in communities across Victoria and supporting economic recovery
  • Increasing community safety and confidence in public places
  • Promoting widespread engagement in crime prevention initiatives by involving the community in designing public safety and security infrastructure
  • Supporting initiatives that connect the community and build social cohesion
  • Testing innovative approaches to crime prevention

Projects are eligible that have an economic stimulus benefit, and that increase community and public safety and security, including:

  • Infrastructure projects that increase the safety and use of community spaces (for example, infrastructure upgrades to community centres, sporting facilities, and parks)
  • Projects to increase the security of community or public spaces, including security upgrades to places of worship

“The State Government’s Community Safety Infrastructure Grants are a great opportunity for our local sporting clubs and non-profit community groups that own or manage community facilities,” Mayor Cr Seema Abdullah said.
