  • Support efforts to increase the safety of residents and to decrease crime throughout Fort Worth neighborhoods.
  • Support efforts to increase the safety of youth and reduce juvenile crime through crime prevention and intervention programs.

Additionally, programs must include a literacy component.

Nonprofit agencies that can address one or more of these goals are invited to apply for funding. Application forms and instructions are available online, under Purchasing bid 18-0202.
