Community Gun Violence Prevention Grant Request for Proposal

The City of Saint Paul is accepting requests for proposal for programs that promote health and well-being for the Saint Paul community and reduce barriers to safety by disrupting gun violence, youth violence, and group-based and structural violence trends. Programs should creatively incorporate elements of Community First Public Safety recommendations and seek to prevent, intervene, interrupt activities that impact public safety and/or rehabilitate communities adjacent to or impacted by violence.

This project is being supported, in whole or in part, by federal award number SLFRP1612 awarded to City of Saint Paul by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
