‘Safer Queensland’ Community Grants
Tuesday, 4th June 2013 at 9:14 am

Suncorp Insurance has joined forces with the Queensland Police Service (QPS) to fund the third round of Safer Queensland Community Grants.

Community groups, Not for Profit and police throughout the state can apply for the Safer Queensland Community Grants program to develop and implement projects that improve road safety or help reduce crime and fear of crime in Queensland.

In its short two year history, the program has already awarded $350,000 worth of grants to prevent crime and improve road safety in communities throughout Queensland, with a further $160,000 available this year.

Suncorp Group CEO, Patrick Snowball says the grants offer Queensland communities the chance to make positive changes once again in 2013.

“The Safer Queensland Community Grants empower communities to get involved with issues important to their local area and work together to develop local solutions,” Snowball said.

The program is open to both community groups and Not for Profits to apply for one-off grants between $1,000 and $10,000.

“In the past two years, the Safer Queensland Community Grants program has funded a wide range of hugely beneficial crime prevention and road safety projects in regional communities, including awareness and education campaigns addressing youth violence, drink driving, home and property safety, as well as school and community driving education programs.

“The program has also funded improvements to school ‘drop and go’ zones, security to community halls, sporting facilities and youth centres, and a loan scheme for child capsules and booster seats.”

Applications for the 2013 Safer Queensland Community Grants program are now open and close on July 31.
