The Civil Forfeiture Crime Prevention and Remediation Grants provide one-time funding to crime prevention projects that align with funding streams chosen on an annual basis. Organizations are welcome to apply for a specific grant stream (or streams) during the annual call for grant applications, which usually happens in the fall.

Please note that applications are only accepted during a call for applications.
