Project Safe Neighborhoods Training and Technical Assistance Program

Funding Agency:
Department of Justice

The Department of Justice is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights, increases access to justice, supports crime victims, protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is designed to create and foster safer communities through a sustained reduction in violent crime. The program's effectiveness depends upon the ongoing coordination, cooperation, and partnerships of local, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies and community organizations working together with the communities they serve — engaged in a unified approach coordinated by the U.S. Attorney (USA) in all 94 districts. This program supports the current Administration’s goal of reducing violence in our communities and supporting survivors of violence.

The purpose of the PSN National TTA Program is to support the needs of the 94 PSN Teams and to provide TTA, resources, instruction, and information that will enable them to improve their capacity to reduce violence in our communities and support survivors of violence. Because of the breadth of deliverables and the diversity of the population served under Project Safe Neighborhoods, the successful applicant should suggest a collaborative model of assistance comprised of a consortium of experienced technical assistance entities in its project design.  The selected provider will be expected to accomplish and deliver the following goals, objectives and deliverables:
