It has been created in direct response to the many people and grassroots organizations that are taking on-the-ground action in their neighborhoods.
Applicants are strongly encouraged, but not required, to propose activities that adhere to the Seven Field Principles (7FP) model, an evidence-based framework that has been successful in fostering strong communities and reducing violence.
