Assets Recovery Community Scheme


The Assets Recovery Community Scheme is now open for applications and will close on Monday 13th September at 5pm.

The Department of Justice is inviting voluntary and community sector organisations, registered charities, and statutory bodies delivering projects in community settings in Northern Ireland to apply for funding aimed at preventing crime.

The Assets Recovery Community Scheme allows monies received from the payment of confiscation orders following a criminal confiscation to be diverted into community projects across Northern Ireland to support communities and individuals and address some of the harmful impacts from a wide range of crimes.
