Tackling Crime Harper’s Government helps
14 Oct, 2012
Honourable Vic Toews, Canada’s Public Safety Minister, announced on September 13th in Winnipeg, that the National Crime Prevention Centre is ready to receive applications for its next funding intake.
“The Harper Government is committed to keeping our streets and communities safe,” said Toews. “Youth crime and violence are serious concerns for many Canadian families and communities, which is why I am happy to announce that we are once again investing in community-based projects that help those who are most at risk of offending. Projects that receive funding will provide at-risk youth with life skills that will empower them to make smart choices and to stay away from crime.”
While program authorities have yet to decide what they are going to do with the $10 million that has already been reserved for Quebec, the authorities did mention that community groups will have to get busy because they must complete their applications for funding before the October 25th deadline.
Eligible for funding: start-up activities, hiring and training of staff, leased equipment, assorted rental fees for workspace and other facilities, etc. Also included are other assorted outreach initiatives along with any expenses incurred.
