The City of Grande Prairie has launched a Crime Mitigation Grant (CMG) pilot project to fund projects proposed by residents, businesses, not for profits, associations, and charities who believe a project has the likelihood of reducing their concerns related to crime or social disorder.

A total of $50,000 will be awarded, with a limit of $10,000 per application. The deadline for application submission is July 1, 2020.

The Committee will evaluate the proposals using a matrix made up of the following considerations:

  • A validated crime/social disorder concern, which exists or is likely to exist
  • A review of what measure(s) the applicant or the City has taken to date
  • Determine the individuals’ vulnerability and risk factors
  • The extent of the impact being experienced by the applicant
  • The cost of the proposal, the amount of Grant funds available, and whether the applicant should have a financial contribution
  • The likelihood the proposal will achieve the desired result
  • Alternatives to the proposal

To apply, download and complete the application form and submit by July 1, 2020, to via e-mail to: pss@cityofgp.com or by mail to:
