SGIC has launched the 2011 Community Grants Program, an initiative that provides funding to community groups across the country to help make communities safer.

The program is open online now until 31 March to organisations working in the areas of crime prevention, road safety, emergency readiness and response and the environment.

SGIC Spokesperson Emily Gatt encouraged local community groups to apply for a grant.

“Over the years we’ve supported a number of fantastic community organisations that have helped to make a difference to local issues.

“SGIC is proud to support organisations that work to make local communities safer and more resilient,” said Ms Gatt.

Since 2003 the Community Grants Program has given more than $4 million to over 1,000 community projects right across Australia.

Community groups interested in applying for a Community Grant are encouraged to visit the Community Grants Program. Applications close at 5pm Thursday, 31 March 2011.
