Safe Night Precinct Safety Initiative GrantTuesday, February 1, 2022

Council is calling for applications to make the City Centre’s Safe Night Precinct safer. The Safe Night Precinct Safety Initiative Grant provides commercial businesses and incorporated bodies funding to improve the late-night economy, community safety and connectivity around licenced venues and surrounding areas within the designated Safe Night Precinct Boundary.

The grant seeks to:

• Assist licenced venues and businesses to create safer public environments within the Safe Night Precinct area
• Decrease instances of risky or offensive behaviour or violence
• Increase opportunities for CCTV and surveillance in key locations
• Encourage patrons to not congregate on public streets late at night
• Create a safer night-time environment for all patrons

You can download a copy of the Grant guidelines HERE.

Applications are now being accepted from commercial properties or incorporated bodies within the Mackay Safe Night Precinct Boundary as determined by the Queensland Government.

Submit your application HERE.

Applications close at midnight 18th February 2022.
