1. APPLICATION OVERVIEW & INSTRUCTIONS

For FY 2022-23, a total of $105 million in state and federal 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[1] throughout the Commonwealth.  PCCD is announcing availability of up to $80.5 million of these funds for 2022 VIP Competitive Grants to support effective local intervening and preventive measures to stop gun and group violence that is occurring across the state. Community-based organizations, institutions of higher education, 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. To reduce the risk of lost work, applicants are strongly encouraged to develop their funding request responses outside of the SurveyMonkey form first (utilizing templates available on PCCD's website) before entering final information and submitting in SurveyMonkey.

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. 

Initial funding requests submitted via Survey Monkey will be reviewed on a rolling basis to determine eligibility and alignment with funding announcement goals, objectives, and activities. PCCD staff will notify entities on or before October 31, 2022 if they have been selected to move to the next phase of the application process, which will utilize PCCD’s Egrants system
