Summer 2023 Targeted Community Investment Grant Application

The City’s Targeted Community Investment Grant (TCIG) application is now open! Organizations in Philadelphia engaged in violence prevention or intervention work can apply for grants from $1,500 – $50,000. Special consideration is given to applications that address the needs of young people age 16-24 and young adults between 25-34, as well as those that show youth, community, and/or multi organization collaboration.

What is TCIG?

The Targeted Community Investment Grant program funds community-based violence prevention programs and activities that improve public safety, increase opportunities for self-development and care, and build a stronger sense of community throughout neighborhoods most impacted by gun violence.

TCIG grantees have trauma-informed approaches to gun violence, build resiliency in their communities, mediate conflicts, and promote social or economic empowerment. Examples of past programs include, but are not limited to:

  • Resource fairs

  • Outreach events

  • Job training and career development

  • Neighborhood and community beautification

  • Education events and workshops

  • Community engagement
