What is a Block Action Team?

The Block Action Team (BAT) Program, an initiative of Los Altos Community Foundation (LACF), improves community preparedness levels and strengthen our ability to respond to disasters. 

BATs are eligible to apply for funding for a City-sponsored neighborhood improvement initiative, the Community and Emergency Preparedness Grant Program (now accepting applications through January 14, 2020!)

BATs participate in activities to get to know each other, share resources, and create safer and more resilient neighborhoods. They also work with Neighborhood Watch Captains for crime prevention, and with Community Emergency Response Team members (CERTs) and HAM radio operators to prepare for emergencies.

Los Altos Community Foundation hosts hour-long BAT training and information sessions throughout the year.
