The Safer Communities Fund is an Australian Government commitment to keep Australians safe and secure by providing funding to address crime and anti-social behaviour through the implementation of crime prevention and security initiatives, such as CCTV and lighting.

Round five builds on round four and targets schools, pre-schools, places of religious worship, local councils and community organisations to help protect those who may be at risk of attack, harassment or violence stemming from racial or religious intolerance.

Mr Tehan says the fifth round of funding delivers on two Federal Election commitments and that the Federal Government has made available $180.1 million to keep communities safe.
