The Project Safe Neighborhoods program is a federal grant program administered by ODCP. The PSN program is designed to address violent crime with an emphasis on gun and gang related crime. The PSN program provides funding to each of the 94 US Attorney districts. The program facilitates a coordinated response to the most critical violent crime problem in each district.
Each of the U.S. Attorneys have established district PSN workgroups. The workgroups develop a PSN strategic plan which includes funding priorities for the award.
ODCP, in cooperation with the U.S. Attorney’s Offices, offer a competitive PSN funding opportunity. PSN promotes safe neighborhoods through a reduction in violent crime. Projects address criminal gangs and the felonious possession and use of firearms. The PSN program supports coordination, cooperation, and partnerships of local, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies. PSN projects support the communities they serve in a unified approach coordinated with the U.S. Attorneys.
