INDIANAPOLIS – Four Indianapolis organizations received $75,000 grants from the city, for their work to curb violence.

The four organizations that received grants Monday were:

  • RecycleForce
  • VOICES
  • Community Action of Greater Indianapolis
  • Edna Martin Christian Center

The organizations focus on evidence-based violence prevention work and wraparound services in Indianapolis neighborhoods.

There were nine applications for violence prevention grants, the city said. The four winners were chosen by a panel of researchers from IUPUI.

“Each group shares one common goal – a safe, convenient and realistic route for neighborhoods in Indianapolis,” Hogsett said.
