The Public Safety Program: This program is provided to increase neighborhood safety with services that activate neighbors through civic engagement. Key components include free home security surveys, personal safety information, victim assistance, traffic safety planning and producing and distributing public safety-related information/e-alert notices and fliers. Block Club organizing keeps neighbors working together to prioritize problems, identify resources and develop and implement action plans to resolve problems. This program is primarily funded by federal Community Development Block Grants that the City of Grand Rapids receives and then funds a myriad of community programs.
