Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations, institutions of higher education, and Native American tribal entities for initiatives to improve safety in local communities. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting an application. The goal of the program is to invest in a collaborative network of community-based organizations and institutions, as well as local nonlaw-enforcement government agencies, to address less serious/lower-level crimes through the delivery of coordinated programs and services.

Through this opportunity, the Bureau of Justice Assistance seeks applications to fund the development and testing of a new or innovative approach to improving community safety and trust that is an alternative to traditional enforcement mechanisms for neighborhoods experiencing high rates of less serious and low-level criminal offenses. This model will involve coordination with law enforcement entities to improve public safety and community residents’ perceptions of law enforcement and procedural fairness and legitimacy.

This program seeks to fill a gap within OJP’s current funding plan by seeding the development, implementation, and testing of a new or innovative approach to achieving community safety that is an alternative to a traditional enforcement model for less serious and lower-level crimes. It will provide funding in FY 2022 to fund an innovative strategy or model to improve community safety, build trust, limit unnecessary involvement in the justice system, and improve residents’ perceptions of law enforcement and procedural fairness and legitimacy.

BJA’s Reimagining Justice: Testing a New Model of Community Safety Program will invest in a collaborative network of community-based organizations and institutions, as well as local nonlaw-enforcement government agencies, to address these less serious/lower-level crimes through delivery of coordinated programs and services. This new community safety model will address the needs and objectives of community leaders, residents, and other members through a community engagement process that will include coordination with law enforcement entities, where appropriate, in a locality or one or more neighborhoods experiencing a precipitous increase in crime, while avoiding any unnecessary justice system involvement.
