Proceeds of Crime Act

The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 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.

We are responsible for the policy development of programs funded under section 298 of the Act.

Following a machinery of government change on, grants relating to crime prevention transferred from the Department of Home Affairs to us on 1 July 2022.

For a list of projects funded before 31 December 2017, refer to the Grants page. Grants funded after 30 December 2017 are published at GrantConnect.
