Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $210,394)

The Fiscal Year (FY) 23 Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Program for the United States Attorney’s Office (USAO) for District of Oregon will operate with a project period of October 1, 2023, through September 30, 2026. The district’s FY23 funding allocation is to be announced.

The District of Oregon’s goal for the FY 2022 PSN grant is to reduce gang violence and drug-related violence district-wide, with a particular focus on preventing violence perpetrated by or directly impacting youth.

The District has developed objectives and strategies in order meet its goal guided by the four PSN Pillars: Community Engagement, Prevention & Intervention, Focused & Strategic Enforcement, and Accountability.

Community Engagement: The district will continue to develop and maintain partnerships with and between law enforcement, government entities, and community partners.

Prevention & Intervention: The district will continue working to improve targeted prevention and intervention efforts for individuals at greatest risk of engaging in or becoming a victim of violent crime.

Focused & Strategic Enforcement: The district will continue to focus enforcement resources on investigating and prosecuting the district’s most active or significant violent offenders.

Accountability: The district will continue collecting and using intelligence and data to monitor violent crime trends throughout the district and assess the effectiveness of ongoing violence reduction efforts.

The USAO partners with many agencies that play different and complementary roles in executing the district’s PSN grant strategy. All PSN partner agencies are encouraged to identify and use intelligence- and data-informed violent crime reduction strategies and regularly share information with one another. The USAO will continue to prioritize the identification of new community stakeholders who provide vital, violence-reduction services to at-risk individuals and families.
