Grants are available for homeowners, organizations and community groups in selected areas of Arizona, for programs and projects that promote neighborhood safety. The goal of the funding is to enhance the quality of life for neighborhood residents by both reducing and preventing crime within local neighborhoods. This can be accomplished by educating individuals to work together to solve problems, encouraging citizens to develop a sense of ownership for their neighborhoods, developing and addressing common neighborhood goals, coordinating pertinent neighborhood/community meetings, and teaching crime prevention and safety techniques.

Funding will be provided on a competitive basis for proposals that demonstrate the potential to produce the greatest measurable results for a definable population or area. The service area shall be within the corporate limits of the city of Phoenix or the impacted population must be Phoenix residents.

Definitions of Eligible Applicants:

CO-APPLICANT - An educational or religious organization, non-profit agency within a specific geographic area, and City of Phoenix department by section or division.

PRIMARY APPLICANTS may submit TWO applications in the following ways: ONE application as the PRIMARY APPLICANT for its own neighborhood program and ONE as a partner with a CO-APPLICANT, as defined above. If a PRIMARY APPLICANT does not apply by itself for a grant, it may submit TWO applications as a partner with TWO different CO-APPLICANTS.

Primary applicants must submit copies of neighborhood meeting agendas from four neighborhood meetings held in separate months during the previous year where crime prevention topics were discussed. These agendas must indicate the number of people who attended each meeting. CO-APPLICANTS CANNOT APPLY BY THEMSELVES AS A SINGLE APPLICANT. They must partner with a listed or registered neighborhood/homeowners/Block Watch organization(PRIMARY APPLICANT).

Organizations that have been in existence for six months or less may only apply for a maximum of $1,000. In order to apply for a grant amount of more than $1,000, Primary Applicants (neighborhood/homeowners/Block Watch organizations) must submit copies of agendas from four neighborhood meetings held in separate months during the previous year where crime prevention topics were discussed. It must be indicated on each agenda the number of people who attended that meeting.

Grant funds shall be used to fund new or existing programs and activities with an identifiable anti-crime component or safety program. Eligible uses include, but are not limited to, crime prevention programs, neighborhood crime-fighting workshops, and crime-fighting/prevention educational programs. Proposals to expand a current program or activity into a new geographic area where no similar programs or activities exist will be considered.
