Criminal Property Confiscation Grants Program

The Department of Justice administers a grants program on behalf of the Attorney General, drawing on funds collected under the Criminal Property Confiscation Act 2000.

The Criminal Property Confiscation Act 2000 provides for the confiscation in certain circumstances of property acquired as a result of criminal activity or used for criminal activity. The Act also makes provision for re-distribution of confiscated funds and proceeds of the sale of other confiscated property for a number of purposes including the development and administration of programs or activities:

Under the grants program, incorporated, not-for-profit organisations and local government authorities can apply for funds up to $200,000 for these purposes.

Round 14 of the Grants Program closed on 30 May 2018. 47 applications seeking a total of over $7.05 million were received.

13 approved projects from this funding round have been offered funding totalling over $2.13 million. More information on these projects is available by downloading the Successful Projects from the April 2018 Funding Round.
