One Safe Place invites proposals through a Request for Proposal process and awards sub-recipients who support the goal to reduce gun and gang violence by the most violent individuals in designated Project Safe Neighborhood Program (PSN) communities by employing a research-driven, intelligence-led, and problem-solving approach to reducing firearm and gang violence through enforcement, deterrence, and prevention.
The Project Safe Neighborhood Program (PSN) is designed to create safer neighborhoods and to reduce gun and gang violence by employing a research-driven, intelligence-led, and problem-solving approach to crime prevention.
The program’s effectiveness is based on this cooperation of local, state and federal agencies engaged in a united approach led by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas. The strategy of the Northern District of Texas Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Task Force is to focus on gun, gangs, and violent crime as they relate to the safety and welfare of the community. The overall PSN Strategy is to implement a four-prong approach to combat gun, gang, and violent crimes, which includes, law enforcement, schools, community organizations, and a focus on reentry and deterrence.
Federal funds are authorized under 34 U.S.C. §60702 Project Safe Neighborhoods Block Grant Program (PSN). PSN funds are made available through a Congressional appropriation to the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance. All awards are subject to the availability of appropriated federal funds and any modifications or additional requirements that may be imposed by law. Safe City
Commission dba One Safe Place will serve as the fiscal agent for the BJA FY22 Project Safe Neighborhood solicitation, grant number 15PBJA-22-GG-00833-GUNP.

Applicant organizations may include public and private institutions of higher education, independent school districts, non-profit corporations (including hospitals and faith based organizations), and units of local government, such as local law enforcement agencies/offices.
