DOJ Grants: Finding the Funding and Grant Writing Basics
The United States Attorney’s Office presented a first-of-its-kind grant writing workshop on February 13, 2020, for entities throughout western Pennsylvania, including police departments, non-profits, service providers, schools and universities, and municipal and local governments.
“Each year, the Department of Justice makes hundreds of millions of dollars available to fund critical community programs, assist victims of crime, and support law enforcement and public safety activities.” said U.S. Attorney Scott W. Brady. “We wanted to ensure interested entities are able to identify what funding opportunities exist, know when and how to apply for those funds, and have the tools and resources they need to ease the application process.”
More than 100 people representing agencies from western Pennsylvania’s 25 counties attended the free workshop, which was hosted by Westminster College at the McKelvey Campus Center in New Wilmington, PA and was co-sponsored by the Western Pennsylvania Chief's of Police Association.
Participants learned about grants from the following DOJ offices: Office of Community Police Services; Office of Justice Programs; Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Programs; Bureau of Justice Assistance; Office for Victims of Crime; and Office of Violence Against Women.
