The purpose of the Florida Contraband Forfeiture Grant Program is to provide support to neighborhood agencies and organizations engaged in projects that seek to improve neighborhood safety, promote crime prevention, and provide drug abuse education and offer drug abuse prevention services. The Bradenton Police Department is pleased to announce the availability of asset forfeiture funds for appropriation to community groups and organizations. This is accomplished by offering funding to neighborhood groups, associations, or organizations which have developed specific projects to address these areas of concern.
There are no matching fund requirements, nor are there restrictions on the amount of funding requested or the scope of the project for which support is requested. However, the amount distributed to successful applicants is within the sole discretion of the Chief of Police based in part on the amount of funding available.
This program will provide funds to community groups, associations, or non-profit organizations providing services to residents within the municipal boundaries of the City of Bradenton. Only one application per organization will be accepted. Proposals may range from requests for funding of entire projects or components of a larger project. Proposals may be for any new project, ongoing program, or regularly held event, so long as the project, program, or event meets the eligibility criteria set forth by the agency.
Persons interested in applying should download applications from our website or pick up our application packets at the Front Desk of the Bradenton Police Department at 100 10th Street West. For more information, you may contact Lisa Reeder at 941-932-9357.
Applications must be received by December 13, 2018 by 5:00 PM.
