posted: Mar. 09, 2023

Thanks to $500,000 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds, local small businesses can apply to the Indy Public Safety Foundation for a one-time grant up to $2,500 to install and manage security cameras. Businesses can also connect already in-service security cameras or apply to offset the cost of camera installation through the b-link Pro program that connects individual cameras to a network that is monitored by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
Background: The City of Indianapolis technology grant program - administered by the Indy Public Safety Foundation and Downtown Indy, Inc. - is designed to support the City's community violence reduction efforts by providing financial assistance to enable the purchase, installation, and setup of more IMPD remotely-accessible cameras in and around local businesses and commercial properties throughout Marion County. Cameras connected via are owned and operated by the business or individual, but provide live-stream video access to IMPD.
Eligibility: To be considered for a grant, an applicant must be a local business or commercial property owner. Applicants may apply for up to $2,500, all of which must be used for the purchase, installation, and/or set up of capable cameras. Applicants may apply for multiple rounds but shall only receive a maximum of two $2,500 awards annually. Applicants must be located within Marion County, Indiana and within an IMPD service district. If awarded, applicants must work with a integrator/installer - a list can be provided upon request.
  • Preference will be given to locations within Qualified Census Tracts (''QCT") or within a ZIP Code with a COVID-19 Impact Score greater than zero (see SAVI's COVID-19 Impact Score).
  • Preference will be given to businesses and local properties designated as "high-impact" by IMPD, IPSF, Downtown Indy, or the City of Indianapolis.
  • Every effort will be made to invest in a robust cross-section of Marion County stakeholders, across the six (6) IMPD districts.
  • Applicants cannot be government agencies, citywide organizations, universities, hospitals, or non-local organizations.
Applications close on March 17 for spring grants awards.
