Community Safety Grants

Across Saanich South, there are many organizations doing good, important work. Many of you have connected with these organizations, as a volunteer, supporter, or someone who has benefitted from their efforts. I’ve also had the chance to meet with many of these groups in our and hear about all they do. 

I'm excited to share that applications for community safety grants are now open. These grants, which use the profits from civil forfeiture to reinvest in community safety and crime prevention, help support projects under four categories – crime prevention, gender-based violence, Indigenous healing, and restorative justice. Learn more about the grants and how to apply here.

There are thousands of dollars available to community organizations to support important projects. These one-time grants are available to organizations annually, and we’ve been pleased to help fund innovative projects throughout B.C. to support community safety at the local level in partnership with the organizations who are dedicated to this work.
