Justice Minister, Helen McEntee T.D. Recently announced the opening of the 2022 Community Safety Innovation Fund to new applications. This fund is drawn from the proceeds of crime seized by the Criminal Assets Bureau and the Gardai.
The fund supports local projects that improve community safety. The Department of Justice has called for applications for projects, that reduce the risk of crime, reduce reoffending and divert vulnerable individuals away from criminal behaviour. Projects funded can also involve the improvement of public spaces or sporting and arts facilities.
The Fund is open to bodies involved in community safety and will support them in addressing local needs and opportunities for innovation not provided for in other funds managed by Departments and agencies. The call for applications for the Fund runs until 8 June 2022 and grants will range from €20,000 to €150,000.
