The CHP program has approximately $140 million in funding for Fiscal Year 2021. The COPS Hiring Program (CHP) is a competitive grant program designed to provide funding directly to law enforcement agencies to hire and/or rehire additional career law enforcement officers in an effort to increase their community policing capacity and crime prevention efforts.

Anticipated outcomes of the CHP program awards include engagement in planned community partnerships, implementation of projects to analyze and assess problems, implementation of changes to personnel and agency management in support of community policing, and increased capacity of agency to engage in community policing activities. All local, state, and tribal law enforcement agencies that have primary law enforcement authority are eligible to apply.

All awards are subject to the availability of appropriated funds and any modifications or additional requirements that may be imposed by law.

Please Note: To apply for funding, applicants must have a DUNS number (DUNS numbers are required of all agencies requesting federal funding) and have an active registration with the System for Award Management (SAM) database. SAM replaces the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) database as the repository for standard information about federal financial assistance applicants, recipients, and subrecipients. Applicants must update or renew their SAM registration annually to maintain an active status. Please see the CHP Solicitation for more details.
