The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands (CFVI) is conducting a competitive application process for U.S. Virgin Islands FY 2018 Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) to identify a research and evaluation partner, the nonprofit announced Tuesday.
PSN is designed to create safer neighborhoods through a sustained reduction in crime associated with gang and gun violence. The program’s effectiveness is based on the cooperation of local, state, and federal agencies engaged in a unified approach led by the U.S. Attorney (USA) in each district. Through the PSN taskforce, the USA will implement the five design features of successful PSN programs—partnerships; strategic planning, research integration, and crime analysis; training; outreach; and accountability—to address specific gun crime and gang violence in the most violent neighborhoods.
According to the release CFVI, as fiscal agent, is conducting a competitive application process to identify a research and evaluation partner to advance the objectives of the USVI PSN Task Force. As a potential recipient of a 2019 PSN subaward, your organization must have the ability to regularly attend/participate in PSN Taskforce Meetings.
Activities will take place during an 18-month period beginning June 2019. The maximum compensation for the resulting contract will be $8,000 based on demonstration of allowable expenses associated with project activities.
The role the selected research partner will play involves:
Deadline: All applications must be submitted via CFVI’s online grant management database by midnight on May 20, 2019.
Submissions will be accepted through CFVI’s online grant management portal at https://cfvi.co/CFVIGrantsPortal.New applicants will be required to register for an account with the Foundant system.
