Community Safety and Crime Prevention Program
The Community Safety and Crime Prevention Program has been established to support community-level activities that strengthen local crime prevention and community safety efforts, that promote the exchange of information between community residents, and that help build closer relationships between communities and the Winnipeg Police Service.
2019 Program applications may be approved to a maximum of $5,000 per application. Multiple applications for similar activities by the same applicant and serving the same community will not qualify.
- Program applicants must be a not-for-profit (incorporated or unincorporated) community entity, group or association
- Funded activities must take place in the City of Winnipeg
- Funded activities must be aimed at:
- Reducing preventable crime
- Increasing communication and knowledge amongst community members
- Encouraging reporting of criminal or suspicious activity
- Improving levels of personal and neighbourhood security
- Helping to reduce the fear of crime
- Preference will be given to applications that focus on preventing illicit drug activity
Funding for approved activities must be expended by November 30, 2020.
All successful 2019 Community Safety and Crime Prevention Program applicants will be expected to report back to the City of Winnipeg within 60 days of the funding being expended with the following information:
- A statement outlining the use of Program monies including activities and operations conducted as well as an approximate number of Winnipeg citizens served by the activity
- Any observable positive outcomes that reflect successful implementation of the funded activity
