This program provides funding to develop comprehensive approaches to address precipitous increases in hate crimes through demonstration programs that conduct outreach and offer training on hate crimes, as well as investigate and prosecute hate crimes.
This approach must include conducting outreach, educating practitioners and the public, enhancing victim reporting strategies, and investigating and prosecuting hate crimes committed on the basis of the victim’s perceived or actual race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or disability. With the precipitous increase in hate crimes, partnerships with local and state-level nonprofit organizations are highly encouraged.
On June 16, 2021, a webinar was held to provide an overview of this opportunity and answer questions.
