Proceeds of Crime Fund broadens Initiatives to address Crime-Related Harm

The scope of the Proceeds of Crime Fund has been broadened to include initiatives that have a well being focus and address crime-related harm. The Fund will also retain its focus on fighting organised criminal groups dealing in methamphetamine and other drugs.

Justice Minister, Andrew Little said, “The Fund provides an opportunity for agencies to test new and innovative ideas. By broadening the scope of the Fund, agencies can trial pioneering solutions to complex issues connected to crime-related harm and build an evidence-based case of what works.”

Andrew Little further said, “Other changes include that at least one third of the funds for allocation must be prioritised for fighting organised criminal groups dealing in methamphetamine and other drugs, expanding the group of agencies who can apply for funding and allowing for multi-year funding for initiatives.”

Andrew Little also said, “Next steps include promoting the Fund to community organisations and NGOs who can partner with a Government agency to make a funding bid. The next funding round will open by October 2019.”
