City of St. John's Launches Building Safer Communities Grant Program

St. John’s has launched a new grant program meant to support community-based service providers in developing or strengthening crime and violence prevention and intervention initiatives or programs for children, youth, young adults, and their families.

Over a three year period, the city is anticipated to receive up to $1.83 million over a three year period through the Public Safety Canada's Building Safer Communities Fund to develop a comprehensive crime and violence prevention strategy in collaboration with community partners and stakeholders.

The City is inviting community-based service providers working with children, youth, young adults, and their families to apply for funding to expand existing or develop new initiatives that align with program objectives.

Currently, funding of approximately $450,000 is available, with a maximum award of $150,000 per community-based service provider. Additional funds may be available based on project scope and partnerships formed.
