Executive Summary

The Americorps Urban Safety program proposes to have 157 AmeriCorps members who will implement proven strategies to improve public safety throughout the City of Detroit. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for decreasing the incidence of Part I property crime in Detroit Police Department precincts and increasing the number of active community block clubs. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 5,000 volunteers who will be engaged in neighborhood block clubs, community patrols and promoting Safe Routes to Schools.

This program will focus on the CNCS focus area of Governor and Mayor Initiatives with a focus on Public Safety. The CNCS investment of $768,195 will be matched with $567,543 in private funding.
