Innovations in Community-Based Crime Reduction (CBCR) Program FY 2019 Competitive Grant Announcement
CBCR is a strategic approach to crime reduction that leverages the knowledge and expertise of community stakeholders with the goal of making neighborhoods safer. By focusing on concentrated ‘hot spots’ of crime within communities, the CBCR Program directly supports the Department’s priorities to reduce violent crime, dismantle gang activity, assist communities struggling with drug abuse, and support law enforcement agencies by integrating enforcement strategies into community-based crime reduction efforts. The CBCR model is based on the principle that sustainable reductions in violent crime require collaboration among partners in the criminal justice system, service providers, and the communities they serve. These partnerships extend to community development corporations and private businesses that are linked to CBCR in local revitalization efforts.
