INDIANAPOLIS -- The Central Indiana Community Foundation announced the recipients Monday of $400,000 in community crime prevention grants.

The grants, distributed as Phase I of the annual Community Crime Prevention Grant Program, will go to 10 organizations to support initiatives to prevent retaliation or reduce crime through conflict resolution.

The Indianapolis City-County Council recently expanded the guidelines for the program to focus more on street-outreach and crisis intervention.

Earlier this year, Indianapolis City-County Councilor Zach Adamson told RTV6 he hoped to see more prevention dollars shifted away from recidivism, which, he said, had dominated previous grant cycles.
