Koori Youth Crime Prevention Grants
Across Victoria 25 community–based partnership projects were funded under the Koori Youth Crime Prevention Grants, a partnership between the department’s Community Crime Prevention and Koori Justice Units.
The focus for funding was on projects that delivered community strengthening, enhanced family relationships and parenting skills, and offered a holistic approach.
More than $1.5 million worth of grants were awarded to projects to empower and re-engage Aboriginal young people through camps, sporting activities, workshops and education to help prevent them from coming into contact with the criminal justice system.
