Grants to USA governmental and tribal law enforcement agencies to support innovative projects that will strengthen the security of local communities. Funding is intended for a wide range of projects that offer creative solutions to crime fighting, problem solving, community engagement, or organizational changes.

  • School Safety
  • Staffing and Allocation Studies

Proposals should be responsive to the topic selected, significantly advance the field of community policing, and demonstrate an understanding of community policing as it pertains to the application topic. Applicants must identify specific program goals that will be directly accomplished if awarded CPD Microgrants funding.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit an application that shows partnerships with key organizations including institutions of higher education and nonprofit organizations in order to build strong working relationships.
