Community projects to benefit from seized criminal profits

The Commissioner has ring-fenced income derived from criminal acts in 2016-17 under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) and offers charitable groups and community organisations the opportunity of applying for a cash grant to fund capital projects. Organisations can apply for grants of between £10,000 and £25,000 from the NICE (Neighbourhoods Investing Criminal Earnings). The Commissioner is keen to fund organisations that can deliver innovative projects that leave a lasting legacy for their communities and  also plans to fund at least one project in each policing area to achieve geographical coverage.  For more information visit
