2022 Crisis Intervention and Prevention RFP

The City of Madison Community Development Division seeks to support community-based programs that can respond and address immediate safety needs, of persons affected by crime, homelessness, and traumatic events to restore some degree of stability. 


We are seeking proposals from organizations to support the following three priority areas under Crisis Intervention and Prevention:

  • Crisis Intervention Support Services:

Services that provide quick response and assistance to persons or households that experience, or are affected by, situations or events marked by violence. Violence is defined as the intentional use of physical force or power so as to injure, abuse, damage or destroy oneself or another person, group or community (Madison Dane County Violence Prevention: A Road Map glossary).

  • Recovery and Stabilization Services:

    Services that offer ongoing support and referrals to key systems including, but not limited to, healthcare, education, courts, public services, immigration, legal services, etc. The goal is to support individuals and households who might be at greater risk of instability, to build on protective factors and increase stability. This can also include programs supporting youth such as Restorative Justice.

  • Prevention Services and Activities:

    Services will provide information, skills and resources that build on protective factors, and help individuals and households.  Activities should focus on providing skills and services that increase opportunities and provide adults a pathway out of poverty.
