Criminal Property Confiscation Grants Program

Closing date extended to 14 November 2014 at 5pm

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.

We strongly encourage applications from not-for-profit organisations and local government authorities for this grants program, particularly from organisations who provide victims of crime with assistance and support.

As part of the grants program, funding may also be available for:

  • Programs designed to prevent or reduce drug-related criminal activity and the abuse of prohibited drugs
  • Any other purpose in aid of law enforsement focussing on community safety and crime prevention initiatives within Western Australia

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. Lotterywest has agreed to consider applications for grants which may towards the organisation’s co-contribution requirements. Representatives from Lotterywest will attend the information sessions to explain their grant application processes and in particular, how Lotterywest may be able to offer support to complement an application to the Criminal Property Confiscation Grants Program.
