Description: Community Policing Development (CPD) Microgrants funds are used to advance the practice of community policing in law enforcement agencies through training and technical assistance, demonstration projects, the development of innovative community policing strategies, guidebooks, and promising practices that are national in scope and responsive to the solicitation topic requirements. Applicants are invited to propose demonstration or pilot projects to be implemented in their agency that offer creative ideas to advance crime fighting, community engagement, problem solving, or organizational changes to support community policing in one of ten areas (see below). The COPS Office, a federal provider of innovative, customer-focused resources that address the continuing and emerging needs of those engaged in enhancing public safety through community policing, has designed the CPD Microgrant solicitation to address critical topics in the law enforcement field by building on the principles of community policing. The 2020 CPD Microgrant program has been established to fund specific projects related to the following sub-topic areas: (1) Hate Crimes; (2) Human Trafficking; (3) Meeting Rural Law Enforcement Challenges; (4) Officer Safety and Wellness; (5) Recruitment, Hiring, and Retention; (6) School Safety; (7) Staffing and Allocation Studies; (8) Victim-Centered Approaches; (9) Violent Crime; and (10) Youth Engagement. Detailed descriptions of each of these sub-topics are available in the application guide. There is up to $2,300,000 million in CPD Microgrant funds available. All CPD Microgrant awards are subject to the availability of appropriated funds and any modifications or additional requirements that may be imposed by law. Funding is limited, and it is expected that this solicitation will be very competitive. Each award is one year (12 months) in length. There is no local match. Each award will be in the form of a grant.
