Department of Justice and Equality
The new Community Safety Innovation Fund closed for applications for its first year of operation on 8 June last. My Department has received 120 applications from a diverse range of organisations to access funding under this new scheme for innovative projects to improve community safety. Officials in my Department are currently assessing the applications.
The Deputy will appreciate that I cannot comment on individual applications to the Fund. I can assure the Deputy however that the consideration of all applications will be progressed in as timely a manner as possible.
