The Commissioner has responsibility for a number of important grants and funds that work to improve community safety on Merseyside.
Community groups, voluntary organisations and social enterprises are invited to bid for a slice of these funds to help make Merseyside an even better place to work, live and visit.
Please find out more about these grants below:
Crime and Disorder Reduction Grants
Crime and disorder reduction grants are used to provide funding to organisation which help to tackle these issues in Merseyside.
Crime Prevention Fund
The Commissioner's Crime Prevention Fund gives organisations, charities and social enterprises the opportunity to bid for up to £25,000 to help prevent crime and protect their communities.
This Fund is used to stop problems before they occur, by reducing the opportunities for crime and by deterring people away from becoming involved in anti-social and criminal behaviour.
Police Property Act Fund
The Commissioner also runs the Police Property Act Fund. This fund gives voluntary and community organisations that are working to make a difference in their neighbourhoods the opportunity to apply for a one-off grant of up to £5,000.
These grants all go towards projects that reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, support victims or reduce reoffending and are in line with the Commissioner's Priorities.
Since 2015, grants from this fund have focussed on innovative projects that help to divert young people away from becoming involved in anti-social or criminal behaviour.
