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 first grant cycle opens December 1, 2022 and closes January 31, 2023 and grant applications will be accepted at any time during this 2 month period. 

MCPF has $25,000 available to fund this first round and expects to have additional funding available for future rounds.
