Request a Grant Writer

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.”

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$18,000,000

Number of Grants:

Maximum number of awards BJA expects to make: 93

Term of Contract:

Period of performance start date: October 1, 2020
Period of performance duration: 36 Months

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The following entities are eligible to apply: PSN team fiscal agents for the federal judicial districts

All fiscal agents must be certified by the relevant district United States Attorney’s Office (USAO). Eligible USAO-certified fiscal agents include states, units of local government, educational institutions, faith-based and other community organizations, private nonprofit organizations (including tribal nonprofit), and federally recognized Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior).

BJA recommends that districts select their current PSN fiscal agent, or consider using the State Administering Agency (SAA), for DOJ funding because SAAs may better leverage state resources to assist in the implementation of the district’s PSN initiative.

If an applicant is a fiscal agent or other entity that has not received the required certification by its local USAO, its application will not be considered for funding.
