Grants to USA government agencies, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, faith-based or community organizations, and tribal governments to create and implement strategies to reduce violent crime and promote safe neighborhoods. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.
Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is designed to create and foster safer neighborhoods through a sustained reduction in violent crime. The program's effectiveness depends upon the ongoing coordination, cooperation, and partnerships of local, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies working together with the communities they serve.
With PSN, each U.S. Attorney's Office is responsible for establishing a collaborative team of federal, state, local, and tribal (where applicable) law enforcement and community partners to implement a strategic plan for investigating, prosecuting, and preventing violent crime. Through the PSN team, each district will implement the five design features of PSN—leadership, partnership, targeted and prioritized enforcement, prevention, and accountability—to address violent crime in their respective districts. For more information on the five design features, see https://bja.ojp.gov/sites/g/files/xyckuh186/files/media/document/bja-2020-17027.pdf#page=5. PSN also encourages the development of practitioner-researcher partnerships that use data, evidence, and innovation to create strategies and interventions that are effective and make communities safer.
30 percent of PSN funding must be used to support gang task forces in regions in the United States “experiencing a significant or increased presence of criminal or transnational organizations engaging in high levels of violent crime, firearms offenses, human trafficking, and drug trafficking.”
