COPS Office Receives Grant Funding for 2009

On March 11, President Obama signed the Omnibus Appropriations Act for 2009 that provides $500 million in funding for the COPS Office this fiscal year. The funding is in addition to the $1 billion recently appropriated for the COPS Hiring Recovery Program (CHRP) under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

Fiscal year 2009 funding will cover COPS Office programs for Community Policing Development (CPD), Indian Country, Methamphetamine, Law Enforcement Technology, Secure Our Schools (SOS), and Child Sexual Predator Elimination. Additional information and application materials for these funding opportunities will become available in the coming weeks.
