Community News…..CCPG Program
The Indianapolis Foundation has just released the report, The Importance of Community, as part of its Community Crime Prevention Grant (CCPG) program.
Two years ago, the Foundation was selected by the City of Indianapolis to administer this new program. The CCPG program is a responsive, open-inviation grant program specifically dedicated to investing in local efforts that have the potential to reduce crime in the Hoosier Capital. This 2015 report summarizes the Foundation’s efforts during the first year serving as grant administrator of the CCPG program, lessons learned from the community in which it serves, and specific recommendations to help improve the impact of local crime prevention investments going forward.
“The Indianapolis Foundation has helped donors make transformative grants based upon research, community knowledge and a commitment to supporting effective not-for-profits since 1916. We are proud of our work supporting the City of Indianapolis and our community’s residents to improve public safety and will use the data collected in this report to better inform our efforts administering the Community Crime Prevention Grant Program.”
– Troy Riggs, Director of Public Safety, City of Indianapolis
