Macon Violence Prevention Grant Recipient Toolkit
Congratulations on your grant from the Macon Violence Prevention Grant Program at the Community Foundation of Central Georgia! We have developed this resource guide as a way to help you successfully manage your grant. Please be sure to review these resources and feel free to return to this page as needed.
The Community Foundation of Central Georgia in partnership with Macon-Bibb County established this grant program to support local charitable organizations [501(c)(3) public charities and faith-based organizations] in their efforts to reduce violent crime in our community. The Macon Violence Prevention Grant Program aligns with the County’s Macon Violence Prevention Strategic Plan to support organizations in their work to reduce and ultimately prevent violent crimes.
Addressing our public safety crisis is the top priority for Macon-Bibb County. By creating a safer community, MVP will make Macon-Bibb a destination of choice for visitors, new businesses/industries, and home for families for generations to come.
MVP seeks to engage all community stakeholders with the Mayor and local government to create a unified plan to address Macon-Bibb’s public safety crisis.
The MVP Plan will implement proven solutions that reduce violent crime and strengthen the community. MVP will heavily involve community members to establish consistent communication with law enforcement and a dense network of community-led programs.
