Funding Available through the Intellectual Property Enforcement Program

BJA is seeking applications for funding through the FY 2020 Intellectual Property Enforcement Program: Protecting Public Health, Safety, and the Economy from Counterfeit Goods and Product Piracy solicitation.

The Intellectual Property Enforcement Program (IPEP) is designed to improve the capacity of state, local, tribal, and territorial criminal justice systems to address intellectual property (IP) enforcement, including prosecution, prevention, and training and technical assistance. Funding awards will support law enforcement agencies which have an IP enforcement task force or plan to create one. These task forces will collaborate with relevant state, local, territorial, tribal, and federal agencies, including their local U.S. Attorney’s Office, to fulfill program goals.

Learn more about this opportunity and apply by 11:59 p.m. ET on April 14, 2020.
