MetLife Foundation & Local Initiatives Support Corporation Invite Applications for Community-Police Partnership Awards

Dealine: January 17, 2003

The MetLife Foundation and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) are again partnering to recognize, sustain, and share the work of innovative partnerships between community groups and police to promote neighborhood safety and revitalization.

Through the program, the MetLife Foundation and LISC will identify and honor partnerships that can exhibit tangible accomplishments in their efforts to advance the process, outcome, and/or evaluation of potent police-community collaborations. Eligible applicants must be member organizations of partnerships that include, but need not be limited to, community organizations and police. Awardees will receive a monetary grant. Selection committee members will also promote the selected programs by publishing and distributing their accomplishments in case statements to a wide audience of practitioners, policymakers, and academics. By submitting a project for consideration, all applicants grant permission to CSI to publish the submission (in whole or in part) in order to call the attention of the police, community development, and public policy fields to the applicants’ good work.

Eight monetary awards totaling $130,000 will be made. Two first-prize winners will receive $35,000 each; two second- prize winners will receive $20,000 each; honorable mention awardees will receive $5,000 each. Awards are unrestricted funds that may be used by the recipient in any manner that, in the awardee’s opinion, promotes, furthers, or strengthens the recognized partnership.

Interested applicants must complete and submit a brief preliminary application. Complete program guidelines and applications are available on the LISC Web site.
