2016 Programs

If you're a state, local, tribal or territorial law enforcement agency then you should absolutely explore our funding opportunities. As the leading community policing experts at the U.S. Department of Justice, we've invested over $14 billion in community policing since Congress established our office in 1994.

We invite you to learn about our various grant programs (they're not all for law enforcement agencies!), read about our current grantees' successes, and plan to apply for funding to support your community policing efforts.

Be Prepared

Although we don't currently have any open solicitations, there are actions you can take to be prepared to apply for COPS Office funding (or any government funding) as it becomes available.
