Opportunity Available: Rural Violent Crime Reduction Initiative

Funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the Rural Violent Crime Reduction Initiative (RVCRI) is an effort to provide funding and assistance to rural law enforcement agencies seeking to reduce violent crime and address problems associated with violent crime. Funding and support are available for implementing violent crime reduction strategies, improving investigations, improving services to victims, and for enhancing collaboration between local stakeholders.

RVCRI is an opportunity for law enforcement agencies who are addressing a rural violent crime problem to apply for up to $150,000 in funding support. The RVCRI Microgrant Application will always remain open; however, the first deadline for application review is December 15, 2022.

Additionally, on November 10, 2022, at 2 p.m. ET, a webinar will be held to provide additional information about this opportunity. Learn more about this event and register to participate.
