Proceeds of Crime Act
The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (the Act) establishes a scheme to confiscate proceeds of crime and allows for confiscated funds to be used to benefit the community. Under section 298 of the Act, confiscated proceeds of crime can be re-invested in programs for relevant purposes, including crime prevention and law enforcement.
The Attorney-General's Department is responsible for the policy development of programs funded under section 298 of the Act.
As a result of a machinery of government change on 1 July 2022, grants relating to crime prevention transferred from the Department of Home Affairs to the Attorney-General's Department.
For a list of projects funded prior to 31 December 2017, refer to the Grants page. Grants funded after 30 December 2017 are published at GrantConnect.
