Summary

This report recommends funding under the 2013 Community Safety Investment (CSI) Program. Of the 72 applications received, 19 are recommended for funding of $683,750.00. An amount of $38,150.00 has been held for appeals.

 

The purpose of the Community Safety Investment Program is to help create safe communities for people in Toronto. Community-led efforts to respond to local safety issues help create opportunities for people to work together to build stronger communities and prevent violence. CSI makes resources available to organizations that are in a unique position to reach vulnerable communities with information, prevention activities and situation-specific responses. The time-limited and outcome-focused projects funded through the program help create safer places for everyone.
