Section 143 of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 provides the Commissioner with powers to award crime and disorder reduction grants to any organisation and project they consider will help them achieve their crime prevention and wider priorities.
The Commissioner has determined that the method for allocating CSF for 2016/17 will be through a transparent application process, whereby the Commissioner can have oversight on the outcomes that his funding can deliver. A series of grants to existing (mainly local authority) partners to support current programmes for community safety, crime reduction and antisocial behaviour have previously been identified. Each grant offered is for one year and subject to grant agreements which specify the outcomes agreed with each provider (please see below). Partners will be required to provide at least two satisfactory reports containing information on outcomes in support of the Police and Crime Plan objectives, realised from previous spend.
Details of the grants which have been awarded in the current and previous years can be found at the links below.
