Civil Forfeiture Office grants and compensation

As of fiscal year end 18/19, the Civil Forfeiture Office is pleased to have distributed more than $46 million in grants and eligible victim compensation.

All money granted by the office comes from forfeitures.

The grant program is primarily managed by the Community Safety and Crime Prevention (CSCP) branch who are also responsible for distributing millions of dollars in non-forfeiture grant money. CSCP proportionally distributes grant moneys across the province. All applications are carefully considered. To view information about their stream, please click here.

In addition, the Civil Forfeiture Office retains not more than 10% of forfeited moneys to make grants to police agencies for training and equipment. If you are a peace officer located in B.C. and are interested in applying for this funding, please contact us.
