MetLife Foundation Funding Community Police Partnership Awards Program

Since 2002, the MetLife Foundation (metlife.org) and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (www.lisc.org) have partnered to recognize, sustain and share the work of innovative partnerships between community groups and police to promote neighborhood safety and revitalization. Through the MetLife Foundation Community-Police Partnership Awards, the MetLife Foundation and LISC identify and honor partnerships that exhibit tangible accomplishments in their efforts to advance the process, outcome, and evaluation of potent police-community collaborations. Eligible applicants must be member organizations of partnerships that include, but need not be limited to, community organizations and police. Awardees receive a monetary grant and their work is promoted via case studies to a wide audience of practitioners, policymakers, and academics. Five to eight awards totaling $100,000 will be made, with award amounts ranging from $10,000 to $35,000. Awards are unrestricted funds that may be used by the recipient in any manner that, in the awardee’s opinion, promotes, furthers, or strengthens the recognized partnership. Interested applicants must complete and submit a brief preliminary application form, available online at the LISC Web site. The deadline for applications is February 24, 2006.
