The presenters will discuss the purpose and goals of this funding opportunity; review its eligibility requirements; and address frequently asked questions.
Through this opportunity, BJA 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.
