This year, the California legislature approved $209 million for competitive, 3-year, grants to cities disproportionately impacted by violence to improve safety and promote healing in communities. 53 California cities are eligible to apply for this grant, more than ever before!
On Nov. 19, 2021, the BSCC released the RFP for the California Violence Intervention and Prevention fund (CalVIP). Because the timeline to apply is so quick, it is critical that community-based organizations and cities engaging in violence prevention and intervention eligible for this funding are aware of the opportunity as soon as possible.
Milestone RFP Dates:
- Jan. 7, 2022: Letter of interest due (recommended but not required to apply)
- Feb. 11, 2022: Proposals due
