Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) National Training and Technical Assistance Program
PSN is designed to create and foster safer neighborhoods through a sustained reduction in violent crime, including but not limited to, criminal gang violence and the felonious possession and use of firearms. The program's effectiveness is based on the cooperation and partnering of local, state, tribal, and federal agencies engaged in a unified approach led by the United States Attorney (USA) in each district. Acting decisively at all levels—federal, state, local, and tribal— will help reverse a rise in violent crime and keep our citizens safe. PSN provides the critical funding, resources, and training for law enforcement, prosecutors, and their PSN task forces to combat violent crime and to make their communities safer.
Only one application per lead applicant will be considered; however, an applicant may be proposed as a subrecipient (subgrantee) in multiple proposals.
