Miami-Dade County announces second round of the Safe in the 305 Grant Program to promote Peace & Prosperity

Miami-Dade County Office of Neighborhood Safety (ONS) launches the second round of the Safe in the 305 grant program, which encourages residents and community stakeholders to develop and lead initiatives to enhance safety in their neighborhoods. The program is a component of Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava’s Peace & Prosperity Plan. Applications will be accepted from now until May 26, 2023.

“Miami-Dade County is making significant investments in addressing gun violence through prevention, intervention and reentry focus strategies,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “As we continue to work together to create a safe, inclusive and prosperous Miami-Dade, programs like Safe in the 305, other initiatives in the Peace & Prosperity Plan, and the Miami-Dade County Community Violence Intervention Initiative are crucial in keeping our neighborhoods safe so all residents may thrive.”

The grants will be awarded to projects that address efforts to revitalize neighborhoods, assist justice-involved individuals, support youth development, address mental/emotional wellness, food insecurity, and the digital divide. Microgrants will be awarded to applicants seeking funding support that range from $500.00 to $1,500.00.

“Safe in the 305 puts community leaders and residents at the forefront of creating safer neighborhoods,” said Annika S. Holder, Director of the Miami-Dade County Office of Neighborhood Safety. “This round of funding will further improve safety by addressing community blight, supporting youth development, and promoting mental wellness.”

Grice, Director of the Community Action and Human Service Department (CAHSD). “Safe in the 305 is another great empowerment tool that helps to strengthen neighborhoods, communities, and our county.”
