Community groups in rural and regional Victoria can now apply for grants of up to $10,000 to help combat ice in their local area.

The Victorian Government is providing $500,000 to fund grassroots Community Ice Action Groups across regional and rural Victoria.

The funding will allow local community members to come together for the first time to develop local solutions in the fight against ice and for other groups to build on existing successful locally-based responses.

A range of activities including forums, production and development of communications, promotion of education opportunities and the evaluation of these initiatives and interventions will be supported.

The community grants are part of the Victorian Government’s $45.5 million action plan to reduce the supply, demand and harm of a drug that is ruining lives.
