Through this opportunity, the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks applications for funding to support comprehensive community-based approaches to addressing hate crimes that promote community awareness and preparedness, increase victim reporting, and improve responses to hate crimes. This program empowers community-based organizations and civil rights organizations to establish community-centered approaches for public awareness, education, and prevention of hate crimes. The program is also designed to develop community-informed model policies, practices, and trainings for law enforcement and prosecution entities regarding how hate crimes are reported, investigated, and prosecuted.
