GRANT MONEY will soon be up for grabs for crime prevention projects around the province.

Attorney General and Minister of Justice Suzanne Anton announced Nov. 1. that up to $1 million is being made available for crime prevention projects through the latest round of civil forfeiture grants.

Groups from around the province will be able to apply for financing for projects that fit the two eligible streams: Domestic Violence Units and youth crime prevention in communities.

Application process details for the civil forfeiture grants will be available on Nov. 5 at: http://www.pssg.gov.bc.ca/crimeprevention/grants.

The Civil Forfeiture Act allows the province to seek forfeiture of property that is alleged to have been used to commit, or is the proceeds of, unlawful activity.

B.C.’s Crime Prevention Week is Nov. 1 to 7 to raise awareness of crime prevention strategies and highlight British Columbians who have contributed to community safety.
