The Department of Justice (DOJ) Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Program is a nationwide initiative that brings together federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial law enforcement officials, prosecutors, community-based partners, and other stakeholders to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in a community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. PSN is coordinated by the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices (USAOs) in the 94 federal judicial districts throughout the 50 states and U.S. territories.

The PSN Grant Program is awarded based on a formula and administered by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). It awards funds to certified fiscal agents that work with PSN Teams in federal judicial districts to support those districts’ PSN strategies. Each PSN Team selects a fiscal agent to receive the federal funds and then make subawards to, or enter into contracts with, each entity that will carry out the district’s PSN grant strategy.

Eligible Applicants:

Certified PSN Team fiscal agents for the federal judicial districts. All fiscal agents must be certified by the relevant district’s United States Attorney (USA). Eligible USA-certified fiscal agents include states, units of local government, educational institutions, faith-based and other community organizations, private nonprofit organizations (including tribal nonprofits), and federally recognized American Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior).
