Grants available for projects that are helping to reduce crime and make Hertfordshire a safer place to live

Deadline Midnight on 2nd August 2022 - decision end of November

The aim of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Fund is to support community and voluntary initiatives which will reduce crime and make Hertfordshire a safer place to live by helping to deliver the priorities of the Community Safety and Criminal Justice Plan for Hertfordshire (2019–2024).

The fund is made up from funds recovered under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA) and empowers local groups to find solutions to community safety problems.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available from the Police Commissioner's Action Fund to support innovative local schemes which aim to reduce crime and make our communities safer. Your project will help deliver the aims of the Commissioner’s Community Safety and Criminal Justice Plan for Hertfordshire (2019-2024) which sets out the priorities for ‘Everyone’s Business.’

Please note - in your application you should explain how you will deliver safely in line with any Covid19 related legislation.
In the timing of your application please note that it can take up to six months from the deadline to hear the outcome.
