Community-Police Partnership Awards Available

The Community-Police Partnership Awards program, a collaboration between the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (www.liscnet.org) (LISC) and the MetLife Foundation, is designed to recognize innovative collaborations between community groups and police departments. In particular, the selection committee seeks to celebrate the integration of law enforcement and community building to reduce crime, spur investment, reduce blight, develop positive alternatives for at-risk populations, and enhance other indicators of community vibrancy.

The award is for past accomplishments and is not a funding opportunity for groups in start-up mode. The program ultimately will select six to eight winners this year and award $130,000 in unrestricted funds.

Eligible applicants must be member organizations of partnerships that include, but need not be limited to, community organizations and local police.

Case studies documenting the strategy and accomplishments of last year’s winners can be viewed on the MetLife Awards page. Applicants are encouraged to read these accounts to learn what the program considers to be award-quality partnerships.

The complete RFP can be downloaded from the MetLife page of the Community Safety Initiatives section of the LISC website. Deadline: February 27, 2004 (first-round proposals). http://liscnet.org/whatwedo/programs/csi/MetLifeAwards.shtml
