APPLICATION OVERVIEW & INSTRUCTIONS

For FY2021-22, $30 million in state funding for Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) has been directed to the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) for providing grants and technical assistance to address community violence throughout the Commonwealth.  Community-based organizations, institutions of higher education, local municipalities, district attorneys and counties are eligible to apply.
 
PLEASE READ THE VIP FUNDING ANNOUNCEMENT POSTED ON PCCD'S WEBSITE PRIOR TO INITIATING THIS APPLICATION PROCESS:

Initial Request Process.  This SurveyMonkey form serves as an applicant’s initial request for VIP Funding. A written version of the form is available to view and download on PCCD's Gun Violence Grants & Funding webpage to help you formulate your responses in advance.
 
You are not required to complete this form in one sitting; however, to continue working on your request, you must utilize the same computer/system (e.g., web browser) that the initial request was started on.  Please note that you must hit “Next” on each section to save your information for the previous screen.  Once you hit the “Submit” button, you will not be able to modify your request. 

Please refer to PCCD’s Gun Violence Grants and Funding webpage for additional information regarding VIP funding.  Questions regarding this initial request can be sent to RA-PCCD_ExecutiveOfc@pa.gov.  Responses to all questions will be posted on PCCD’s Funding Announcement Q&A webpage.  Due to the competitive nature of the VIP solicitation, PCCD staff are unable to answer questions about specific proposals. 

If your initial request is approved at the December 1, 2021 School Safety and Security Committee meeting, you will be contacted by PCCD staff to complete a final, more robust application via PCCD’s Egrants system.
