The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) seeks to support the development and testing of new or innovative approaches to improving community safety and trust that are alternatives to traditional enforcement mechanisms for neighborhoods experiencing high rates of less serious and low level criminal offenses.

This model will involve coordination with law enforcement entities to improve public safety and community residents’ perceptions of law enforcement and procedural fairness and legitimacy. This solicitation also supports funding for national training and technical assistance to support site-based grants and the field in building capacity and partnerships essential to this work.
