DOJ Innovations in Community-Based Crime Reduction Program Training and Technical Assistance Program Solicitation

Program Summary

The Bureau of Justice Assistance is seeking applications to provide national training and technical assistance to local and tribal partners to plan and implement place-based, community-oriented strategies to address neighborhood-level crime issues as part of a broader neighborhood revitalization or redevelopment initiative. Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation (BCJI) resources will target neighborhoods that generate a significant proportion of crime or type of crime within the larger community or jurisdiction. BCJI furthers the Department’s mission by leading efforts to enhance the capacity of local and tribal communities to effectively target and address significant crime issues through data, analysis, and collaborative cross-sector approaches that help advance broader neighborhood development goals. The goal of BCJI is to reduce crime, increase trust, and improve community safety as part of a comprehensive strategy to advance neighborhood revitalization. Through a broad cross-sector partnership team, including neighborhood residents, BCJI grantees target neighborhoods with hot spots of violent and serious crime and employ data-driven, cross-sector strategies to accomplish this goal.
