NIJ is seeking applications for funding a multi-site evaluation of the Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) program. PSN is a Department of Justice-sponsored initiative that involves cooperation of multiple criminal justice agencies and their partners working at the local level to develop and implement strategic responses to reduce gun crime. PSN also prioritizes the leadership of United States Attorney Offices in coordinating local efforts and carrying out federal prosecutions. This evaluation project will include between eight and ten local site-level evaluations as well as one national assessment of PSN. NIJ intends to fund this project in two phases, with the opportunity for additional funding for the second phase to begin in FY2021.
