Sussex Police Community Cashback funding for groups

Sussex Police is using funds seized from criminals to support community projects. The proceeds of Crime Act will be used in conjunction with the powers of the courts to confiscate money and assets from criminals who have been convicted of varying offences and are making the funds available for approved projects and initiatives that will benefit the diverse communities of Sussex.

The Community Cashback,  grant scheme has been set up which is available to anyone to help fund their community project. Community Cashback is for projects and initiatives which help to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, enable diversion from crime or reduce the fear of crime in a community or neighbourhood.

There is a total of £50,000 available to give out to projects and will be awarding individual grants for amounts between £1,000 and £10,000.

The deadline for applications for grants from current available funding is 12 July 2013.
