Grants to Texas nonprofit and faith-based organizations, nonprofit hospitals, school districts, local government units, and IHEs for crime prevention activities. Funding is intended to develop and enhance partnerships with agencies addressing issues related to neighborhood safety.

The purpose of this announcement is to solicit applications for projects that are designed to create and foster safer neighborhoods through a sustained reduction in violent crime, including, but not limited to, addressing criminal gangs and felonious possession and use of firearms.

Funds may only be used to foster and improve existing partnerships between Federal, State, and local agencies, including the United States Attorney in each Federal judicial district, entities representing members of the community affected by increased violence, victims' advocates, and researchers to create safer neighborhoods through sustained reductions in violent crimes by:

  1. Developing and executing comprehensive strategic plans to reduce violent crimes, including the enforcement of gun laws, and prioritizing efforts focused on identified subsets of individuals or organizations responsible for increasing violence in a particular geographic area;
  2. Developing evidence-based and data-driven intervention and prevention initiatives, including juvenile justice projects and activities which may include street-level outreach, conflict mediation, provision of treatment and social services, and the changing of community norms, in order to reduce violence; and
  3. Collecting data on outcomes achieved through the Program, including the effect on the violent crime rate, incarceration rate, and recidivism rate of the jurisdiction.

Eligible Costs:

  1. Salary, wage, and fringe benefits of individuals supporting the PSN Project;
  2. Overtime compensation of individuals supporting the PSN project;
  3. Workshops and events associated with the support of the PSN project (pending approval by Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Assistance)
  4. Travel associated with implementation and evaluation of the PSN project;
  5. Equipment purchased to support the execution of the PSN project; and
  6. Printing, publication, and duplication of materials that support the PSN project.
