Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a New York nonprofit organization, business, or government entity in eligible regions to address the needs of residents who have experienced trauma. Funding is intended to promote healing, equity, and safety. Target populations include minorities who experience high rates of violence and have limited access to trauma services. The New York County District Attorney’s Office (DANY) is requesting proposals to develop and implement a Center for Trauma Innovation (CTI) in northern Manhattan.

The goal for the CTI is to address the needs of people exposed to trauma by enhancing and expanding trauma-informed and trauma-specific services and resources. The CTI will focus on communities of color that experience disproportionate rates of violence and have less access to trauma services. The CTI will offer culturally-competent, free, clinical and non-clinical trauma-specific services; provide training and technical assistance to local organizations and city agencies seeking to incorporate or enhance trauma-informed and trauma-specific practices; and establish a Trauma Innovation Learning Community that uplifts the CTI’s vision for safety, healing, and equity.

This solicitation and investment contributes to the CJII goals of improving public safety and enhancing fairness and efficiency in New York City’s justice system by providing services and supports to bolster community-led anti-violence efforts, support individuals in healing from trauma through trauma-informed and trauma-specific services, and reduce further contact with the criminal justice system.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants may be for-profit, nonprofit, or governmental entities. Applicants will serve as the lead entity and, through partnership with one or more entities, administer the required components of the CTI to enhance and expand traumaspecific services. Asset forfeiture funds (i.e., the source of CJII funding) cannot be used to fund government staff salaries. CJII is committed to funding community-based initiatives and helping community-based organizations to develop capacity where needed. As such, organizations of varying sizes and capacity are eligible and encouraged to apply. However, applicants should have the staff, relationships, and resources necessary to implement their proposed vision for the CTI or should demonstrate the ability to acquire and develop them in a timely manner upon being awarded funding through this RFP. Although this initiative is funded through the CJII, applicants are not required to have specific experience in criminal or juvenile justice to be eligible for funding.

The proposed project must include a lead entity (i.e., lead applicant) and at least one partner provider identified in the applicant’s proposal. The lead entity is responsible for developing and administering—in a collaborative manner and informed by its partner(s) and members of the community—a cohesive intervention, identifying and supporting coordination and collaboration across the required project components. Applicants should describe the division of responsibilities in the narrative and in the Provision of Services by Lead Entity and Partner Providers worksheet in Appendix 3. The lead entity should collaborate with appropriate system partners (e.g., NYPD, DANY, NYCHA, ACS, DOP, DOHMH) and community partners (e.g., service providers, faith-based organizations, resident associations) in the planning and implementation of the project. As part of its collaboration with system and community partners, the CTI will convene an advisory board—to consist of members identified by the CTI and DANY—during the planning phase and at regular intervals throughout the implementation phase.
