The National Community Crime Prevention Program provides grants to support community-based crime prevention projects.

The objective of the Modern Slavery grant opportunity is to provide funding to not-for-profit non-government organisations to deliver community-based projects to prevent and deter modern slavery-related crimes in Australia. Projects delivered under the Modern Slavery grant opportunity will support the implementation of Australia's National Action Plan to Combat Human Trafficking and Slavery 2015-19 (National Action Plan) which provides the strategic framework for Australia's response to human trafficking and slavery.

Key outcomes of the Modern Slavery grant opportunity include:

  • increasing awareness amongst vulnerable groups, service providers, businesses and the broader Australian community of modern slavery in Australia, including awareness of indicators to support the identification of victims, best practice responses and referral pathways
  • increasing understanding and supporting effective implementation of Australia’s Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) amongst businesses and the broader Australian community to support combating modern slavery in supply chains
  • reducing factors that make people vulnerable to modern slavery and increasing resilience to modern slavery amongst vulnerable groups, such as migrant workers and children
  • building and enhancing networks that aim to share best practice, resources and information on modern slavery.
