Did SCIF fund existing and core programs?

Though SCIF is not meant to fund core programs, established programs may partner with other organizations to add innovative crime prevention or reduction pilot projects to complement and improve their existing program and services.  SCIF funds must be applied to the new activities associated with the pilot project. 

Assigning or seconding current staff to work on a pilot project may be included as part of your agency’s in-kind contribution or salaries may be included in the pilot project’s budget.
