MetLife supports community, police partnerships

The Community-Police Partnership Awards, sponsored by the MetLife Foundation and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation, recognize innovative partnerships between community groups and police to promote neighborhood safety and revitalization.

Six Neighborhood Revitalization Awards, ranging from $15,000 to $25,000, will celebrate exemplary collaboration between community groups and police that yield crime reduction as well as economic development outcomes such as real estate development, business attraction, and job growth. Five Special Strategy Awards of $15,000 each recognize exemplary collaboration between community and police partners who have achieved significant public safety outcomes in six specific categories. The preliminary application deadline is February 28, 2011. Program details are available on the LISC website.
