NOLA FOR LIFE Fund Now Accepting Grant Applications

November 15, 2012

Today, as part of Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s NOLA FOR LIFE murder reduction plan, the City of New Orleans and the Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF) released a request for proposals (RFP) seeking local non-profit organizations to deliver high-quality programs and social services to those most at risk of being caught in the cycle of violence and murder.

With funding available through the NOLA FOR LIFE Fund housed at GNOF, the City hopes to ensure that critical social services are available to those at high risk of killing or being killed.

“To end the cycle of violence and death on the streets of New Orleans, we must have social services in place to support individuals who choose to stop shooting and make better life choices,” Mayor Landrieu said. “Through the NOLA FOR LIFE Fund, our community is investing in our young people who want to turn their lives around, and these grants will help ensure that we can stand up and support organizations that can make a real difference.”

Organizations that wish to apply can  access the application details on the Foundation’s websitehere.
