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 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.
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.
The last funding round closed in September 2013. Thirteen, of the thirty-six applications received, were granted some $1.8 million to undertake approved projects.
More information is available in the list of successful projects below.
