The Department administers a grants program on behalf of the Attorney General, drawing on funds collected under the Criminal Property Confiscation Act 2000.
Criminal money and property is seized by the Western Australian Police and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
Grants can only be used to prevent or reduce drug-related crime and drug abuse, support crime victims and to aid law enforcement.
The current funding round opened on Wednesday 23 July 2014. Eligible not-for-profit community organisations and local government authorities are invited to apply for funds of up to $200,000 to implement projects for the above purposes.
There will be two Perth-based information sessions to assist with the application process.
Date: Information sessions will be held on:
