The Targeted Community Investment Grant (TCIG) application period, managed by the City’s Criminal Justice & Public Safety Department,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 ages 16-24 and young adults between 25-34, as well as those that demonstrate youth, community, and/or multi-organizational  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
