Additional Information

The FY22 Microgrants - Community Policing Development Solicitation (CPD Microgrants) program funds are used to develop law enforcement’s capacity to implement community policing strategies by providing funding to local, state, tribal, and territorial law enforcement agencies. When properly applied, community policing improves the identification and prioritization of community problems; builds trust and relationships between law enforcement and the communities they serve; and enables an agency to build a culture toward accountability, transparency, open communication, and mutual trust.

There is approximately $3 million in funding for multiple awards available through the FY 2022 CPD Microgrant program. Each award is one year (12 months) in length. There is no local match.
