Hindu Council thanks federal government for Temple safety grant

Date : 17th May 2023



The Albanese Government and the Attorney  General The Hon Mark Dreyfus KC MP have announced a $40 million grant to help protect faith-based places to improve security and safety.

Hindu Council of Australia thanks The Hon Anthony Albanese PM, for this grant. Hindu temples have been a target of vandalism attacks throughout Australia in recent days. This grant will help Hindu temples to secure their places of worship with safety upgrades, such as fencing, lighting, security cameras, traffic barriers, alarm systems, access controls and security guards.

On behalf of all the Hindu temples and Hindu community, we thank the Attorney General and the Prime Minister for this timely action.

The Securing Faith-Based Places grants program will open for applications in July 2023. Details will be published on the Australian Government’s GrantConnect website at https://help.grants.gov.au.
