Every year, David Lloyd - Hertfordshire's police and crime commissioner - oversees the scheme which supports partner organisations with hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Grant recipients will make sure their activities focus on the public's needs, particularly victims of crime, and consider how they will contribute to the reduction of crime in Herts.
Previous funding grants have been awarded to educate children and young people on the dangers of exploitation and grooming, scam prevention awareness and early intervention knife crime initiatives across the county.
