The City of Seaside is seeking proposals from community-based organizations interested in partnering for the California Violence Intervention and Prevention grant (CAL VIP). The Grant Amount is approximated at $500,000 over a two year period (May 1, 2018 to April 30, 2020).
Eligible organizations are public or private nonprofit organizations including community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, and public agencies serving youth ages 10 – 24 based in Seaside and/or serving a majority of Seaside residents.
Approximately $125,000 will be available annually to support local projects or programs which aim to reduce violence through evidence-based prevention, intervention, suppression, and/or re-entry activities. Selection of a CBO project through this process is not a binding agreement or a guarantee for funding. If the City of Seaside application is accepted and the grant is awarded, a contract for services will be executed.
