FY 2020 Project Safe Neighborhoods Formula Grant Solicitation
Apply by: 11:59 p.m. ET, June 1, 2020
This program is designed to create and foster safer neighborhoods through a sustained reduction in violent crime.
Eligible applicants are PSN team fiscal agents for the federal judicial districts. All fiscal agents must be certified by the relevant United States Attorney's Office (USAO). Eligible USAO-certified fiscal agents include states, units of local government, educational institutions, faith-based and other community organizations, private nonprofit organizations, and federally recognized Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior).
See U.S. Attorney Certification Process for the Fiscal Agent and Subrecipients for details on the fiscal agent certification process. BJA recommends that districts select their current PSN fiscal agent, or consider using the State Administering Agency (SAA) for DOJ funding because SAAs can better leverage state resources to assist in the implementation of the district's PSN initiative. SAAs have experience in administering competitive funding processes and have established policies and procedures to manage and monitor grant subawards. Visit the OJP site for a list of SAAs.
