American Psychological Foundation Accepting Applications for Violence Prevention and Intervention Grant
Deadline: June 1, 2009

The American Psychological Foundation, the giving arm of the American Psychological Association, provides financial support for innovative research and programs that enhance the power of psychology to elevate the human condition and advance human potential both now and in generations to come.

The foundation is committed to understanding and preventing violence to create a safer, more humane world. APF’s Violence Prevention and Intervention Grant program aims to encourage the transfer of psychological science with regard to violence, its prevention, and intervention strategies to applications within the community, and also to support the implementation of innovative community programs aimed at preventing violence.

Applicants must be 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations or educational institutions or affiliated with such an organization. Special consideration will be given to programs with a strong foundation in violence prevention and intervention research and have, or show promise for, broad-based community support. APF encourages proposals from individuals who represent diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, and sexual orientation.

The program will award grants of up to $20,000 each. APF will consider requests for seed money to establish promising interventions proposed by community-based organizations or to provide funding for established community programs that have been deemed successful

The complete Request for Proposals is available at the APF Web site.
