The purpose of CGPF is to assist local law enforcement agencies with establishing community programs and local government agencies with establishing violence intervention programs. These programs support the Office’s objective of developing criminal justice strategies that are coordinated at the local, state, and federal level. The program also seeks to enhance the relationship between law enforcement and youth.

Programs funded under this initiative should be established and sponsored by a local law enforcement agency to:

  • Provide recreational or athletic opportunities for members of the community;
  • Improve relations between citizens and law enforcement; or
  • Otherwise benefit or improve the community.

Programs can include, but are not limited to, police/community events such as “National Night Out,” programs for School Resource Officers to implement within public schools, and partnerships with other community groups such as food pantries, recreational leagues, athletic events, local health departments, The Y, Police Explorers, and The Boys and Girls Club. Community Grant Program funds may also support violence intervention programs established and supported by a local law enforcement agency or another agency of a local government.
