Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $992,237)
The Innovations in Community-Based Crime Reduction Program (CBCR) supports local and tribal communities to effectively target and address violent crime issues in distressed, high-crime neighborhoods through coordinated cross-sector approaches that are linked with broader neighborhood revitalization efforts.
The goal of CBCR is to reduce crime, increase trust, and improve community safety as part of a comprehensive strategy to rebuild and revitalize neighborhoods. Through a broad cross-sector partnership team, including neighborhood residents, CBCR grantees target neighborhoods with hot spots of violent and serious crime and employ data-driven, cross-sector strategies to accomplish this goal.
The Selma Center for Nonviolence, Truth and Reconciliation, in conjunction with the City of Selma and community partners, is collaborating with the Nonviolence Institute to implement the Beloved Healthy Community Framework to reduce violence. The program will focus on two evidence-based services through the Nonviolence Street Outreach Worker Program, a street intervention team, and victim services that provide holistic wraparound services to those affected by violence (focusing on homicide victims and their survivors).
