Fund title: Safer Streets Fund
Focus of fund/fund aims:
Funding to reduce neighbourhood crime in hotspot areas, making residents safer and reducing demand on the police
25 March 2021
The Safer Streets Fund enables Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) and local authorities to bid for investment in initiatives, such as street lighting and home security, that have been proven to prevent neighbourhood crime. There is a total budget of £20m to reduce neighbourhood crime in hotspot areas.
The fund is focused on four neighbourhood crime types: burglary, robbery, theft from the person and vehicle crime.
Each PCC area is able to submit up to three prioritised bids, each for a defined local area (or ‘hotspot’) within their PCC geography that is persistently and disproportionately affected by neighbourhood crime. These can be either residential or commercial areas.
Up to £432,000 grant funding will be available per successful bid. Matched funding of at least 20% of total project costs is required.
