The City of Madison, Community Development Division (CDD) is seeking proposals from qualified entities (due June 13, 2018 at noon) to implement one or more of three of the program types that address the goals set forth in Madison's Northside: A Safe and Thriving Community Action Plan. These funds, totaling $120,000, must be spent by September 30, 2019 towards achieving the following goals:
I. Creating a community-based wellness program to increase the availability and accessibility of culturally sensitive health and wellbeing services
II. Building cohesion, and improve relationships amongst Northside residents and other stakeholders through training and events, which address cultural norms related to violence and firearms, improve trust and foster community
III. Supporting youth to develop a Madison Peace Project, where young people are encouraged to promote culture change related to violence, firearms, and youth wellbeing
The funds are being awarded as a part of a Federal award from the U.S. Department of Justice – Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) to support and enhance efforts to help catalyze and further the prevention and response to children's exposure to violence and youth victimization and violence, especially gun and gang violence, through comprehensive approaches to violence prevention and the promotion of youth well-being.
Reviewers will be looking for applicants to design their programs using a data-informed approach, and the City of Madison has partnered with the Sunlight Foundation to develop a Data Toolkit for your use in preparing a strong application.
Workshops have been scheduled to review the application guidelines, evaluation criteria, forms and procedures. Applicants are strongly encouraged to attend and points will be awarded in the scoring of proposals for applicants who attend a workshop or work with staff before submitting their proposal.
