DA Hayden announces grant funding opportunity for nonprofits

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Suffolk County District Attorney Kevin Hayden recently invited nonprofit organizations throughout Suffolk County to apply for grant funding to support violence and substance use prevention and treatment programming.

  “I have had the privilege of serving on the board of several nonprofits, and I know the impact that my office’s Community Reinvestment Grants can have on these nonprofits and the young people they serve,” said Hayden, who is currently on the boards of YOU Boston and the YMCA of Greater Boston. “The pandemic has placed added stress and demand on service providers as they responded to the increased need and adapted to new ways of delivering services. I’m grateful to the organizations that continue to do exceptional work every day supporting our young people and communities.”

  The Community Reinvestment Grant (CRG) program will provide funding of up to $10,000 to 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations in Boston, Chelsea, Revere and Winthrop. Those that offer “violence prevention, substance use intervention and treatment, trauma and mental health support, and mentoring and educational programs for Suffolk County youth and adults are encouraged to apply.” State law allows prosecutors to distribute up to 10 percent of assets seized in narcotics prosecutions to community-based organizations for crime prevention and substance use treatment.

  “Prevention and treatment programs are key to public safety and building a more equitable society,” Hayden said. “Our community partners are among our most valuable institutions, and I’m proud to be able to offer this funding opportunity.”

  Applications are due no later than May 24.
