FY 2022 Hate Crimes Grant Program Round II

The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is pleased to offer a second opportunity for grant funds to localities to combat hate crimes. DCJS is soliciting applications to make competitive grants to localities within the Commonwealth that have established a partnership program with institutions and/or nonprofit organizations that have been targets or are at risk of being targets of hate crimes.

The goal of this program is to minimize bias-motivated incidents by providing funding that supports institutions and/or nonprofit organizations that may be at risk based on race, religious conviction, color, gender, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, or national origin. 

To aid localities with their grant application preparation, DCJS facilitated a webinar training on August 4, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE WEBINAR
