The CCTV (closed circuit television) Grants program offers local councils up to $100,000 in grant funding to implement CCTV infrastructure to improve safety, prevent crime, and reduce the fear of crime.
The state government has committed $500,000 per annum to fund the grants program, which must be matched dollar for dollar by the local council.
This financial year, the program will move from a fixed window for applications to an ongoing process. The aim is to give local councils more flexibility in their planning processes, while encouraging greater implementation of CCTV projects throughout the state.
Local councils are encouraged to read the grants guidelines prior to submitting an application.
Applications must be completed online and are open until Wednesday 31 May 2017.
For all enquiries, including technical assistance with the online application process, please contact the grants officer on (08) 8207 1861 or by agdpolicy [at] sa.gov.au (subject: CCTV%20Grants%20Program%202016) (email).
