Grants of up to $10,000 to Illinois nonprofit organizations, agencies, and groups for safety initiatives in eligible communities. Funding is intended to support activities to foster strong, cohesive communities and reduce violence. Organizations must conduct programming in the Chicago communities of Austin, Auburn Gresham, Chatham, Chicago Lawn, Englewood, West Englewood, Gage Park, East Garfield Park, West Garfield Park, Greater Grand Crossing, Humboldt Park, Lower West Side (Pilsen), New City (Back of the Yards), North Lawndale, Roseland, South Chicago, South Lawndale (Little Village), South Shore, Washington Park, West Pullman, and Woodlawn are invited to apply.

The Chicago Fund for Safe and Peaceful Communities offers rapid-response grant opportunities designed to support activities by nonprofit organizations that build community cohesion and promote safety and peace. 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. For more information see Carl Bell Youth Violence document in Supporting Documents below and http://www.safeandpeacefulchi.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/2021-Chicago-Fund-for-Safe-and-Peaceful-Communities-RFP_1.28.21.pdf#page=2. Collaboration among community organizations is also strongly encouraged as the 7FP model is more effective when implemented in a comprehensive and coordinated way.
