The Criminal Justice Coordinating Council of Harford County has funding available for neighborhood grants. These funds may be used for programs that are new and creative, or for programs that have been effective in helping reduce crime and/or drug abuse in our communities.
The program must help improve the quality of our communities by preserving neighborhoods, making neighborhoods safer and stronger, helping build a sense of community, and/or through intervention or prevention programs for at-risk youth.
The following groups may apply for funding:
Informal community groups

Non-profit organizations must develop partnerships with community organizations and vice versa. Program examples are listed below, but do not include all possibilities:
