Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful Communities
As violence continues to spike in Chicago neighborhoods, local philanthropies are collaborating to provide rapid-response support for immediate action by community organizations working to keep our neighborhoods safe in the weeks ahead.
The Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful Communities will award grants to support community-based actions and activities that can help make neighborhoods safer, reduce violence and promote peace – from now through the beginning of the school year.
From a $300,000 fund, grants ranging from $1000 to $10,000 will be awarded to local community nonprofit organizations in Chicago leading activities that promote community cohesion, foster constructive relationships between police and community residents, and help reduce violence. These could include educational events, group or youth activities, resident leader stipends, recreational activities, festivals, performances, picnics, block-level activities, including rental of venues and supplies, and more.
The brief application for funding is available at www.cct.org/safechicago. Applications are welcome through September 30. Grant decisions will be made on a rolling basis. All activities must be completed by October 31.
