Grant opportunity: Funding for grassroots solutions to combat violence


Recognizing the potential for another spike in violence in Chicago in the weeks ahead, several local philanthropies are collaborating to support immediate intervention by community organizations working to keep our neighborhoods safe.

The Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful Communities will award grants to support community-based actions and activities that will make neighborhoods safer, reduce violence and promote peace – over the Labor Day holiday weekend, and through the beginning of the school year.

Grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 will be awarded to nonprofit organizations in Chicago leading activities that promote community cohesion, foster constructive relationships between police and community residents, and 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.

Applications must be submitted by September 30. To receive funding in time for Labor Day weekend, applications should be submitted no later thanAugust 25.
