PCCD Announces New Round of Anti-Violence Funding - $100 Million Available

Violence Intervention & Prevention (VIP) - $85.5 million

This is our traditional grant opportunity and is very similar to last year’s VIP solicitation. While there are some differences, the goal remains to fund individual orgs and small collaborations for community-based violence prevention and intervention programming.

  • Deadline: October 12, 2022

  • Eligible entities: Community-based organizations (with 501(c)(3) status or fiscal sponsor), institutions of higher education, municipalities, district attorneys and counties.

  • Project period: 29 months (Feb. 1, 2023 – Jun. 30, 2025)

  • Grant amounts: A single grantee can receive up to 50% of its previous fiscal year’s operating budget (expenditures) for the total duration of the grant, up to a maximum of $2.5 million

  • So, for example, if your organization’s total expenditures last year were $200,000, you would be eligible for a maximum grant of $100,000 for the full grant period (not per year).

  • Application method: This year’s solicitation includes a two-phased application process. VIP first-round applicants will be conducted via SurveyMonkey. Please use the attached Word document or PDF to draft your answers before uploading to SurveyMonkey; there is no “save” feature in SurveyMonkey so you might lose your work partway through! After being reviewed, organizations/entities recommended for the second phase of the application process will be invited to complete a more formal application via Egrants. (Note that invitation to the second round is not a guarantee of funding.)
