Project Safe Neighborhood Grants


Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) is designed to create and foster safer neighborhoods through a sustained reduction in violent crime, including, but not limited to, addressing criminal gangs and the felonious possession and use of firearms. The program's effectiveness depends upon the ongoing coordination, cooperation, and partnerships of local, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies--and the communities they serve--engaged in a unified approach led by the U.S. Attorney (USA) in all 94 districts.

The Children’s Initiative will be seeking grant applications for the Northern District of California beginning on Monday, September 21, 2020. Focused program funding areas for the Northern District of California have been limited to:


Targeted Intervention, Prevention, Outreach, and or Reentry:

  • Programs and strategies that break the cycle of crime in the Tenderloin district, with particular attention to keeping youth from becoming involved in gangs and crime.

  • Programs and strategies focused on the reduction of violent crime and open-air drug dealing in the Tenderloin district.

  • Programs and strategies that serve the Tenderloin population and help improve safety.

  • Programs and strategies that improve and enhance interface with the community.
