CFDA #: 16.609

Purpose of this program:

The program initially started as a community prosecution effort to support state and local efforts to address crime by emphasizing the participation of community leaders and residents in developing strategies for public safety with prosecutors and other community justice system officials. The program served as a mechanism for community participation that allows communities to identify local priorities and engage in problem solving and strategic planning, as well as regular communication between the prosecutor's office and community residents. Community Gun Violence Prosecution program was designed to provide funding to chief prosecutors across the country and to assist them in hiring assistant prosecutors who will be dedicated to the prosecution of firearm-related violent crime. Project Safe Neighborhoods is a nationwide commitment and a comprehensive, strategic approach to reducing gun violence in America by networking existing local programs that target gun crime and providing those programs with additional tools.
