Crime Prevention Grants
The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), a division of the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, is seeking applications for the FY 2014 Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Program (BCJI). BCJI supports data-driven, research-informed, community-oriented strategies to address targeted crime issues in neighborhoods.
This funding supports efforts by “cross sector teams” to research the drivers of crime in hot spots and then develop response strategies that include law enforcement, social services and physical revitalization. This year, about 15 grants of $100,000 will be made to sites to do planning over 18 months. A smaller number of applicants will receive up to $1,000,000 to plan and then implement BCJI programs over 3 years.
Safety is a critical component of a vibrant community, every bit as important as quality affordable housing, good jobs, and high performing schools. All people deserve to feel that it is safe for their children to walk to school or play in the local park, to shop in local stores, and to enjoy other neighborhood amenities. Safety is also critical to attracting new homeowners and businesses to neighborhoods where such investments can be catalysts for revitalization.
