The Department of Justice announced that it has awarded almost $17.5 million in grants to support the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Program. The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) will administer the grant awards, which are being made to state and local agencies in partnership with U.S. Attorneys’ Offices. Funding will support efforts to address the epidemic of gun crime and serious violence.
“Over its two-decade history, Project Safe Neighborhoods has evolved to meet the complex challenges of community violence by enlisting the insights and expertise of local partners and by relying on the latest evidence,” said BJA Director Karhlton F. Moore. “We are proud to support our U.S. Attorneys and their allies in their critical work to curb violent crime and build the mutual trust necessary to ensure lasting success.”
