Launched in 2017, the Communities Transforming Policing Fund (CTPF) supports innovative grassroots organizing groups and coalitions across the country working to create public safety by shifting power and resources from policing and the carceral state to transformative, community-directed supports and interventions. Organizations funded by CTPF have intervened in police association contracts, decriminalized poverty, created strong civilian oversight mechanisms, passed state laws to collect data and end racial profiling, and have shifted hundreds of thousands of dollars from police budgets to community-directed needs.
The CTPF is a collaborative effort of the Open Society Foundations, the Ford Foundation, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, and Sierra Health Foundation.
The mission of the Communities Transforming Policing Fund (CTPF) is to support communities that have been under-resourced and over-criminalized in the United States, and to address police discrimination and violence by shifting power and resources from police and the carceral state to communities to create public safety.
The Fund provides grants, technical assistance, organizational capacity-building, networking and leadership development opportunities to its grantees. In doing so, the Fund bolsters power building and grassroots organizing among communities most impacted by police violence.
