Community Resilience Fund
Public Safety Canada’s Community Resilience Fund (CRF) provides financial assistance to organizations undertaking programming and research to address radicalization to violence in Canada.
Public Safety’s Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence (CCCEPV) provides leadership, coordinates talent and expertise, mobilizes and supports community outreach and enhances research in the area. The CRF will be a key element of the CCCEPV to help enhance partnerships and innovation in CRV research and programming in Canada.
To build domestic capacity at the local level and encourage research, the CRF has identified four key priority areas:
- Intervention programming
- Performance measurement and evaluation tools
- Action-oriented research
- Youth engagement and the development of alternative narratives
Call for Proposals
The Call for Proposals is open until October 1, 2017.
