Register Today: Grant Information Session to be Held March 23

(LOUISVILLE, KY) – The Community Foundation of Louisville together with Cities United, the Louisville Metro Office for Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods, and other partners, will open the grant application process for the Community Safety and Healing Fund on March 23, 2023. The fund established in the Fall of 2022 has already granted $1 million to 14 local organizations working in gun violence intervention and interruption.

The current funding cycle will provide grants up to $100,000 that can be used to support the work of 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations (or charitable projects that are fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization), working in Louisville, KY. This funding supports organizations that can expand their capacity to disrupt the current cycle of community violence, with a focus on Black males ages 15-24, giving priority to those who are not currently enrolled in school or employed.

“The data from the most recent Greater Louisville Project report, Safer City By Design, shows Black males ages 15 – 24 are most affected by the violence occurring in our community,” says Ramona Dallum, Vice President, Community Engagement at the Community Foundation of Louisville. “This round of grants from the Community Safety and Healing Fund supports organizations that have an impact on this demographic.”

Eligible organizations are invited to attend the following info session:

  • WHAT: Grant Information Session – Community Safety and Healing Fund
  • WHEN: Thursday, March 23, 2023, 10 A.M.
