The Commissioner has responsibility for setting a number of important grants that work to improve community safety on Merseyside.
Community groups, voluntary organisations and social enterprises are all invited to bid for a slice of these funds to help make Merseyside an even better place to work, live and visit.
Crime and Disorder Reduction Grants
Crime and disorder reduction grants are used to provide funding to any organisation that helps to tackle these issues in Merseyside.

Crime Prevention Fund
In 2015, the Commissioner launched her Crime Prevention Fund which gives organisations, charities and social enteprises the opportunity to bid for up to £25,000 to help prevent crime and protect their communities.
The Fund is designed to stop problems before they occur, by reducing the opportunities for crime and by deterring people away from becoming involved in anti-social and criminal behaviour.

Police Property Act Fund
The Commissioner also runs a Police Property Act Fund. This fund gives voluntary and community organisations that are working to make a difference in their neighbourhoods the opportunity to apply for a one-off grant of up to £5,000.
These grants all go towards projects that reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, support victims or reduce reoffending and are in line with the Commissioner's Priorities. in 2015, the PCC announced that the grants from this fund would focus on innovative projects that help to divert young people away from becoming involved in anti-social or criminal behaviour.
