CalVIP RFP Will Be Released Again to Allocate Surplus

SACRAMENTO (June 9, 2022) – A record $156 million in state funding for grants focused on reducing violence in communities across California was awarded today by the Board of State and Community Corrections. A sizeable surplus remains for reallocation.

Because $53 million of the total $209 million that was available in California Violence Intervention and Prevention grant money remains unclaimed, the BSCC will immediately re-release the Request for Proposals to expedite the awarding of those funds. Cities disproportionately impacted by violence and community-based organizations serving those communities may amend and resubmit applications that were not successful, and those qualifying organizations that did not apply may submit new request for funding. Proposals are due July 15.

Fifty-three California cities and community-based organizations that serve them qualify to apply under criteria set by the local homicide rate. The three-year grants will run from Oct. 1, 2022 through June 30, 2025.
