The City is looking for agencies involved in violence prevention work that uses credible messengers as community crisis outreach workers to apply to the Community Crisis Intervention Program (CCIP) Request for Proposals (RFP).

What is CCIP? 

CCIP uses credible messengers to serve as community crisis outreach workers to prevent and reduce gun violence in Philadelphia. 

CCIP employs proactive strategies in communities most at risk of gun violence. These strategies are aimed at fostering meaningful relationships in neighborhoods impacted by violence, steering those who are involved in violence (or at high risk of becoming involved) into alternative, positive choices, mediating community conflicts, and responding to neighborhood crises related to violence. 

The City seeks to work with multiple providers. All selected organizations are required to collaborate towards shared outcomes, developed and supervised by the Office of Violence Prevention (OVP). 

How can I apply? 

You can find the Request for Proposals at the City of Philadelphia’s eContract Database. Once there, search Funding Opportunity # 21220419012445. 

Applications are due by May 13, 2022
