Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Grant

The United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia in partnership with the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is pleased to announce the availability of $535,653 in federal Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) grant funds. The PSN funds allow states, Tribes, units of local government, non-profits, and other organizations to support a broad range of activities to prevent and reduce violent crime. As the State Administrative Agency (SAA), DCJS has the responsibility of managing the coordination and distribution of PSN funds in a manner that supports the reduction of violent crime in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

PSN is a nationwide initiative that brings together federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement officials, prosecutors, and community leaders to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in our communities and develop comprehensive solutions to address them.
