Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2007, $160,999)

Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a nationwide commitment to reducing gun crime, links existing local programs together and provides them with necessary tools. PSN 1) takes a hard line against gun criminals, using every available means to create safer neighborhoods; 2) seeks to achieve heightened coordination among federal, state, and local law enforcement; and 3) emphasizes tactical intelligence gathering, more aggressive prosecutions, and enhanced accountability through performance measures. The United States Attorney in each federal judicial district will lead the offensive. The fiscal agent, in coordination with the PSN Task Force, will allocate funds throughout the community.

The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency will utilize their FY07 PSN funds to continue to provide support to the District Attorney's Offices in the Middle District in combating gang and firearms violence. A competitive grants process for the 33 counties in the District to target firearm-related crime will be funded. The remaining funds will be utilized to sustain and support the Community Outreach Partnership with the Pennsylvania District Attorney's Association through the funding of the PSN Coordinator's position.
