Community Police Partnership Grant



Community Police Partnership Grant

Over at www.COPS.USdoj.gov they have announced the 2009 MetLife Foundation Community-Police Partnership Awards administered by Local Initiatives Support Corporation. LISC and MetLife Foundation will present eleven monetary awards of $15,000 and $25,000 to partnerships between community groups and police that promote neighborhood safety and revitalization. Case studies about award-winning partnerships will be disseminated throughout the community development and law enforcement industries.

Previous winners have used award money to pay for special patrols, training and equipment for officers, and community events. Information and a link to the full RFP is available at: http://www.lisc.org/metlife
Application Deadline: February 27, 2009

2008 Awardees received a monetary grant ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 in the following categories:
• Neighborhood Revitalization
• Applied Technology
• Aesthetics and Greenspace Improvement
• Diversity Inclusion & Integration
• Gang Prevention & Youth Safety
• Seniors & Safety Eligible Applicants

Public agencies (including police departments and public schools) must apply in conjunction with at least one non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that was a leading partner in the collaboration and will serve as a fiscal agent for award funds. U.S. based applications only.

This is possibly a good way for current groups, such as community mediation centers, that already have an established relationship and program to receive more funding. Good Luck!
