If your initial request is selected, PCCD staff will contact you in June 2021 to work with you to complete a final, more robust application via PCCD’s Egrants system.  If your initial request is selected, it will be recommended for approval at the September 8, 2021 Commission meeting.  The project start date is October 1, 2021.  Only one request per sponsor agency or coalition can be submitted as the applicant.  If more than one is submitted, the request submitted closest to the due date will be reviewed. 


The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) is excited to announce a funding opportunity for communities to increase their ability to identify and address local problems (e.g., substance misuse, school dropout, delinquency and violence among youth) using evidence-based approaches. Nonprofit organizations and units of local government will be eligible to apply for this up-to $150,000 planning grant, with the project period taking place over a 21-month development phase starting October 1, 2021.  Priority consideration will be given to applicants that have never received a Communities That Care (CTC) grant from PCCD, applicants interested in implementing CTC in a community that does not have an organized coalition, and applicants from regions in the state with significant violence-based need. 

More detailed information can be found HERE.

Please note that for this unique funding opportunity, PCCD will be utilizing SurveyMonkey for the initial request process.  PCCD’s Egrants system will be used to implement grant awards.
