Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $9,527,496)

The purpose of the Illinois State Crisis Intervention Program (SCIP) is to support the implementation of firearms restraining orders (FROs) and related programs that work to keep guns out of the hands of those who pose a threat to themselves or others.

Funding priorities were established based on direction from an assembled SCIP advisory committee that includes representatives from the fields of academia, corrections, courts, human services, law enforcement, legal assistance, mental and behavioral health, prosecution, and violence prevention.

Illinois' SCIP funding priorities are centering community voice and incorporating research and evaluation throughout:

FRO training for system partners
FRO compliance and enforcement
Solicitation to support local government FRO implementation, treatment linkages, develop community infrastructure, and follow-up
