The Public Safety Committee of the Board of Aldermen has approved approximately $950,000 to award in calendar year 2019 for programs designed to prevent crimes perpetrated by youth in the City of St. Louis.  

The Committee is seeking proposals from qualified nonprofit organizations to serve at-risk youth in the 11 to 24 year-old demographic. 

“These organizations are dedicated to reducing crime, especially crime caused by youth in the City of St. Louis. It is essential to our overall public safety that we continue to support their work,” said Reed. 

Proposition S, sponsored by President Reed and approved by St. Louis voters in 2008 for public safety, allocates $1 million each year to be set aside for anti-violence youth programs. Organizations apply for the funds through an RFP process and the awardees are selected based upon need.

The application is now open. Nonprofits can apply until Nov. 13.
