Posted by John Hopkins University on November 3, 2020

Johns Hopkins University Innovation Fund for Community Safety will support initiatives in Baltimore that address the root causes of violence. On September 30, 2020, JHU announced a four-year, $6 million commitment to support local initiatives and pilot projects that address the root causes of violence in Baltimore, a significant and sustained investment in community-led innovations and interventions designed to reduce violent crime and make the city safer.

It will also spark and strengthen partnerships between the university and the community with a shared goal of bolstering safety across the city.
