This webinar will provide details for potential applicants to the Bureau of Justice Assistance's (BJA) FY 2023 Reimagining Justice: Testing a New Model of Community Safety solicitation. The presenter will discuss the purpose and goals of this funding opportunity, review its eligibility requirements, and address frequently asked questions.
With this solicitation, BJA seeks to fill a gap within the Office of Justice Programs' (OJP) current funding plan by seeding the development, implementation, and testing of new or innovative approaches to achieving community safety that are alternatives to a traditional enforcement model for communities experiencing a precipitous increase in less serious and lower-level crimes. This solicitation will fund applications proposing an innovative strategy or model to improve community safety, build trust, limit unnecessary involvement in the criminal justice system, and improve residents’ perceptions of law enforcement and procedural fairness and legitimacy.
To use the time most efficiently, BJA encourages participants to review the solicitation and submit any questions they may have in advance and no later than May 15, 2023. Submit your questions to the OJP Response Center with the subject as “Questions for BJA FY 2023 Reimagining Justice: Testing a New Model of Community Safety Program Webinar.”
