Indy crime prevention groups gain additional funding

Five Indianapolis groups, who work to stop crime before it starts, are getting city money to expand.

It’s the second year of a $300,000 annual city grant program for organizations which fight crime not through neighborhood watch or other conventional approaches, but by trying to address root causes.

Each of the five groups will receive $60,000.

Three of the five recipients — RecycleForce, Violence Free Living, and Step-Up — focus on helping former inmates reenter society.
