The City’s Targeted Community Investment Grant (TCIG) application is now open! Organizations in Philadelphia engaged in violence prevention or intervention work can apply for grants from $1,500 – $50,000. Special consideration is given to applications that address the needs of young people age 16-24 and young adults between 25-34, as well as those that show youth, community, and/or multi organization collaboration.
What is TCIG?
The Targeted Community Investment Grant program funds community-based violence prevention programs and activities that improve public safety, increase opportunities for self-development and care, and build a stronger sense of community throughout neighborhoods most impacted by gun violence.
TCIG grantees have trauma-informed approaches to gun violence, build resiliency in their communities, mediate conflicts, and promote social or economic empowerment. Examples of past programs include, but are not limited to:
- Resource fairs
- Outreach events
- Job training and career development
- Neighborhood and community beautification
- Education events and workshops
- Community engagement
