Safety and Crime Prevention Grants Open
Tuesday, 3rd March 2015 at 8:56 am

The 2015 NRMA Insurance Community Grants program, worth a total of half a million dollars, is now open and looking for local Not for Profit initiatives to help make communities safer.

The NRMA Insurance Community Grants program provides funding of up to $5,000 to projects in the areas of crime prevention, road safety, environment and emergency readiness and response.

Since 2003, the Community Grants program has invested over $6.7 million into more than 1,550 grassroots projects around Australia that are having a genuine impact.

Applications can be made online at www.communitygrantsprogram.com.au, where community groups can also find hints and tips on applying for a grant as well as videos of previous grant recipients.

NRMA Insurance spokesperson, Jennifer Cobley said this it was a great opportunity for local community groups to receive support for the fantastic work they were doing, or to get a new project off the ground.

“Every day, thousands of Australians dedicate their time and energy to making our communities safer. The NRMA Insurance Community Grants program supports this by providing much needed funding and assistance to local community projects,” she said.

“Last year we supported a broad range of initiatives including projects that work to reduce youth crime, improve bicycle and pedestrian safety, strengthen disaster resilience and minimise recyclable waste in their communities. It’s great to see the fantastic work our grant recipients have done and the difference they have made in their communities.”

Applications are open from 1 March until Tuesday 31 March 2015 with grants ranging from $500-$5,000 (including GST).

Applications close at 5pm on Tuesday, 31 March 2015.
