Eligible applicants are limited to national, regional, state, or local public and private entities, including non-profit organizations (including tribal nonprofit organizations), faith-based and community organizations, institutions of higher education (including tribal institutions of higher education), and units of local government.
DOJ encourages applications that involve two or more entities, however, one eligible entity must be the applicant and the other(s) must be proposed as subrecipient(s). The applicant must be the entity with primary responsibility for administering the funding and managing the entire project. Only one application per lead applicant will be considered; however, subrecipients may be part of multiple proposals.
The purpose of this initiative is to explore, advance, assess, and disseminate information about strategies intended to enhance procedural justice, reduce implicit bias, and support racial reconciliation. This initiative furthers the Department's mission to ensure public safety and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans. In order to leverage the Department of Justice involvement in this area, this initiative is operated as a partnership among OJP, the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Office, Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), and Community Relations Service (CRS). The initiative involves multiple activities, including managing pilot sites; establishing an information clearinghouse; conducting research; translating research for practitioner audiences; and developing strategies to further the public discourse about procedural justice, reducing bias, and supporting racial reconciliation as a means to build community trust.
