The U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance is seeking applications for funding under the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) program. 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—engaged in a unified approach led by the U.S. Attorney in all 94 districts. Acting decisively in a coordinated manner at all levels—federal, state, local, and tribal—will help sustain recently achieved reductions in crime and keep communities safe. PSN provides the critical funding, resources, and training for PSN teams—including law enforcement, prosecutors, community groups, researchers, and others—to combat violent crime and make their communities safer through a comprehensive approach to public safety that marries targeted law enforcement efforts with community engagement, prevention, and reentry efforts.
The solicitation provides further details about the program. Applications are due by June 25.
