Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $350,000 to the Community Based Public Safety (CBPS) Collective, via the Newark Community Street Team, for general support. The CBPS Collective is a new national network supporting local community-based violence interruption programs. Its launch came out of the Newark Community Street Team’s scan of existing projects deploying community-based public safety strategies, which Open Philanthropy supported in September 2020.
This falls within Open Philanthropy's focus area of criminal justice reform.
The grant amount was updated in November 2021.
