Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, Native American tribal organizations, IHEs, community-based organizations, and civil rights organizations to prevent and address hate-related criminal offenses. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting a proposal. Funding is intended to support comprehensive community-based approaches to addressing hate crimes that promote community awareness and preparedness, increase victim reporting, and improve prevention efforts and responses to hate crimes.

Through this opportunity, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks applications for funding to support comprehensive community-based approaches to addressing hate crimes that promote community awareness and preparedness, increase victim reporting, and improve responses to hate crimes. This program empowers community-based organizations and civil rights organizations to establish community-centered approaches for public awareness, education, and prevention of hate crimes. The program is also designed to develop community-informed model policies, practices, and trainings for law enforcement and prosecution entities regarding how hate crimes are reported, investigated, and prosecuted.

OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. The Community-based Approaches to Prevent and Address Hate Crimes Program supports community-based organizations (CBOs) and civil rights organizations to develop comprehensive approaches to addressing hate crimes. Approaches under this program should be designed to (1) prevent hate crimes; (2) promote community awareness, resiliency, preparedness, and healing; (3) increase victim reporting of hate incidents; and (4) improve responses to hate crimes.

Hate crimes (sometimes called bias-motivated crimes) are criminal offenses motivated by some form of bias toward a victim on the basis of their perceived or actual race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or disability.
