Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative
Community Matching Grants
Now Available: 2013 Community Matching Grant Applications
What are Community Matching Grants?
The Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative, or SYVPI, funds community projects through Community Matching Grants.
Up to $20,000 in funding is available for each project. All projects are required to have a community match that equals at least one-half of the requested amount of SYVPI funding.
These projects will supplement existing Initiative services and will serve youth referred by one or more of the three Neighborhood Networks. For a complete overview of eligible populations to be served, eligible uses of funds, and other details, please thoroughly review the Request for Proposals application and guidelines.
SYVPI focuses on reducing and preventing youth violence in three Neighborhood Networks: Central Seattle, Southeast Seattle, and Southwest Seattle. Currently more than 1,100 youth are served by these Neighborhood Networks. Each has a lead agency that coordinates youth referrals to services. Visit the SYVPI website for more information.
Who Should Apply:
Refer to our Frequently Asked Questions (.pdf) document for more detailed information about eligibility to apply.
When to Apply:
Applicants will be notified of award decision by early May 2013.
If you plan to apply for an SYVPI Community Matching Grant, you MUST attend one of the Neighborhood Networks Technical Assistance sessions to discuss your project, get assistance, and get answers to your questions.
A representative of your selected Network must sign and date the first page of your application to show that your proposed project is aligned with the Network and will complement their existing Initiative services to provide the strongest outcomes for youth. An email confirmation from the Network representative can also be substituted for the signature.
Here are the scheduled Technical Assistance sessions:
