KCMCC Anti-Gun Violence RFP

THIS IS NOT A COMBAT-FUNDED INITIATIVE. The information is being posted on jacksoncountycombat.com to assist the Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission (KCMCC) in raising awareness about this funding availability through the commission and Department of Justice. For more information, contact the KCMCC (e-mail address below under Contact).

$75,000 Available

The Kansas City Metropolitan Crime Commission (KCMCC) has been selected to serve as the Fiscal Agent for the 2018 Department of Justice Project Safe Neighborhood (PSN) grants for the Western District of Missouri-US Attorney's Office.

A portion of the available funding has been dedicated to the development of a community partnership with a non-profit or faith-based organization and the implementation of a 2-year prevention project to supplement this anti-gun violence initiative by October 2019. There is $75,000 available to implement the project currently in one of the chosen focus areas. Respondents may choose to supplement an existing focus area prevention program already being implemented in the PSN target area with the funding if it can help increase outcomes and impact.

The project should focus on either anti-retaliation, youth gang resistance, conflict resolution, or encouraging citizens to call the police or the TIPS Hotline if they choose to remain anonymous. Information that could help solve felony crimes in the PSN Target Area where the project should focus implementation is needed. Other prevention focus areas will be considered if a nexus to anti-gun violence is established.

August 30, 2019 Deadline

Respondents will be requested to develop their own goals/objectives, scope of service, logic model, outcome measurements, budget detail and narrative and submit one electronic copy in Times Roman, Arial or Calibri 12-point font, one-sided by the August 30, 2019 deadline.

If selected by the PSN Task Force Selection Committee and approved by the Department of Justice, the Respondent organization will be requested to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Crime Commission that will identify dates of implementation, reporting requirements, methods of payment, and they will be requested to submit their 501C3 letter, E-Verify MOU, a copy of an insurance certificate showing the respondent/sub-recipient will provide a minimum of $2 million in liability insurance and include the Crime Commission as additionally insured.
