Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories local, state, and tribal law enforcement and correctional entities to train officers in crisis response. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for the development and implementation of a training program that prepares officers for interaction with individuals who have behavioral health conditions or disabilities.

This initiative seeks to implement transdisciplinary crisis response training to educate and prepare law enforcement and correctional officers so that they are equipped to appropriately interact with people who have behavioral health conditions or disabilities in the course of completing their job responsibilities.

This program seeks applications for grant funds from state, local, and tribal law enforcement and correctional entities to:

  1. Plan, develop, and deploy a best practice training program for officers that includes their community.
  2. Develop a strategy for deploying officers trained in crisis response during times of crisis.
  3. Evaluate, improve, and sustain community engagement and a best practice program. 

Awarded sites will be encouraged to develop programs that incorporate BJA’s Crisis Response and Intervention Training Program curriculum and additional best practices that are designed to increase understanding of behavioral health conditions and disabilities, develop empathy, navigate community resources, and increase de-escalation skills within the applicant organization and among staff, and include the community. For information about the curriculum—including a brief description and the curriculum matrix—visit the Academic Training web page: https://www.theiacp.org/projects/academic-training-to-inform-police-responses

Priority Areas:

The Department of Justice is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights, increases access to justice, supports crime victims, protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. In FY 2021, OJP will give priority consideration in award decisions to applications that demonstrate ways in which their projects will advance one or more of these areas. In addition, OJP will give priority consideration, if applicable, to applicants that demonstrate that the individuals who are intended to benefit from the requested grant reside in high-poverty areas or persistent-poverty counties.
