Grants to USA government agencies, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, faith-based and community organizations, and tribal governments for activities to reduce violent crime in local neighborhoods. Interested applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support the creation and implementation of strategies that engage community members and law enforcement agencies in ending violence, preventing victimization, and promoting safe neighborhoods.
Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is designed to create and foster safer communities 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 and community organizations working together with the communities they serve - engaged in a unified approach coordinated by the U.S. Attorney (USA) in all 94 districts. This program supports the current Administration’s goal of reducing violence in our communities and supporting survivors of violence.
With PSN, each U.S. Attorney’s Office (USAO) 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 in their respective districts. That strategic plan should include information on how the PSN team will engage with the community to build trust and accountability, use law enforcement resources strategically by focusing enforcement efforts on cases that will have the most impact on the violent crime rate, and incorporate prevention and intervention strategies to help stop violent crime and victimization before they occur. PSN also strongly 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.
PSN encourages partnerships with local prevention, intervention, and offender reentry programs that can help prevent violent crime, especially those focused on populations and youth that have been traumatized by high levels of violence in their communities who could benefit from additional support.
PSN grant funding can be used to support a wide variety of evidence-based prevention and intervention programs, including Community Violence Intervention (CVI) programs — such as violence interrupters, street outreach, and hospitalbased interventions — which identify those who are at the highest risk and work to reduce violence through targeted interventions. In addition, PSN sites will have access to training and technical assistance resources to assist them in implementing promising prevention initiatives such as CVI.
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.
