​The Minnesota Chiefs of Police Foundation (MCPF) is proud to help MN police departments advance community partnerships and deepen their trust with the public through the Community Partnerships Grant Program.

The goal of Community Partnerships Grants is to support, supplement, initiate and accelerate a police department’s efforts to engage with the community in meaningful ways. All events, projects, programs, and initiatives submitted for consideration must have the purpose of building relationships, trust, transparency, cooperation, or partnerships with the communities you serve.

The Minnesota Chiefs of Police Foundation funded two grant cycles in 2023, awarding nearly $55,000 to 29 departments through the state of Minnesota.

The Foundation will offer additional grant opportunities to police departments in the future as funds are raised from generous donors from the community. We are on our way toward making a statewide impact. Future grant cycles will be announced in C-Notes and Tradewing.
