Federally-funded program to help communities at risk
OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 14, 2014) - Public Safety Canada
Today, the Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, announced the next call for proposals for the Communities at Risk: Security Infrastructure Program (SIP).
The Communities at Risk: Security Infrastructure Program provides funding for minor security enhancements for eligible not-for-profit community centres, provincially/territorially recognized educational institutions, and places of worship linked to a community at risk of being victimized by hate-motivated crime.
Eligible costs under the SIP include:
"Crime prevention is a priority for our Government and we recognize the particular importance of preventing hate-motivated crime. This is why our Government introduced the Security Infrastructure Program, to help build stronger, safer communities. The program helps fund security measures with the goal of allowing community members to practice their faith, culture, and to remain engaged in their community without fear of harm."
