Project Safe Neighboorhoods
(CFDA # 16.609)
Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) program is a nationwide initiative that brings together federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement officials, prosecutors, community leaders, and other stakeholders to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in a community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. PSN is coordinated by the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices in the 94 federal judicial districts throughout the 50 states and U.S. territories. PSN is customized to account for local violent crime problems and resources. Across all districts, PSN follows four key design elements of successful violent crime reduction initiatives: community engagement, prevention and intervention, focused and strategic enforcement, and accountability.
PSN subrecipients must adhere to all requirements in the applicable OMB Circulars and Common Rules (Appendix T), the DOJ Grants Financial Guide, the OMB Uniform Guidance, and the 2020 Compliance Supplement.
The U.S. Attorney General memorandum dated April, 14, 2021 revised guidance related to the Office of Justice Program Grants (OJP) will no longer apply or enforce the certain conditions placed on awards for fiscal years 2017-2020. The Office of Criminal Justice Programs will similarly no longer apply or monitor for compliance. Please refer to the Special Conditions received with your contract for an extensive list.
