The U.S. Department of Justice has announced the winners of the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation (BCJI) Program Awards, including UNCA member East End Community Services of Dayton, Ohio. A complete listing of award recipients is available here.
A new initiative, BCJI will help 15 neighborhoods nationwide tackle crime by developing innovative, data-driven and multi-faceted solutions. Part of the Obama Administration’s Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI), the grants target locations or neighborhoods with significant levels of crime compared to the overall jurisdiction and reaffirm the vital role that community safety plays in neighborhood revitalization.
Congratulations, East End!
