Development Grants

Development Grants are designed to develop stronger agencies.  Agencies that receive funding can be either unregistered or 501(c)(3) entities that propose to increase their capability in a strategic way. 

This can be in areas such as creating a fundraising plan, developing a strategic plan, making service delivery more efficient, performing program evaluation, researching a crime/safety problem, and/or covering one-time costs for program expansion.
