The Justice and Community Grants unit of OJP serves as a catalyst for statewide approaches to reducing and preventing crime, violence and drug abuse through identifying causes, recommending policies and coordinating statewide and community strategies.
We assist state and local governments, public and nonprofit agencies, community organizations and the legislature. We promote healthy communities by bringing together diverse groups, facilitating the exchange of ideas and by providing funds to test promising initiatives.
