How the Grants Process Works at PCCD

The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) does not accept unsolicited applications.

PCCD publically announces funding availability on its website under Current Open Funding Opportunities.  Funding announcement guidelines are provided for each funding announcement and clearly describe eligibility requirements.  You can also be notified when new funding announcement opportunities are available by signing up for Subscription Notifications.


Most of PCCD’s funding opportunities are offered on a competitive basis.  Proposals submitted are reviewed and scored according to criteria stated in each competitive funding announcement.  Consistent with the amount of funding available, one or more proposals with the highest scores will be invited to submit an application.

Applications are thereafter submitted to the Commission for consideration and approval of funding at its regular quarterly meetings.
