REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Department of Public Safety (DPS), Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS), respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to distribute $4,000,000 from Fund GRF, ALI 768425 (Justice Program Services) in FY22 for grants to local law enforcement agencies to assist local communities in reducing and preventing crime, pursuant to Section 373.20 of Am. Sub. H.B. 110 of the 134th General Assembly.  
  Section 373.20 of Am. Sub. H.B. 110 directs OCJS to administer and distribute grants to state and local law enforcement agencies to assist local communities in reducing and preventing crime through the use of promising or proven crime reduction strategies. The use of the grants includes, but is not limited to, overtime, equipment, technical assistance, and analytical support to implement crime reduction strategies.

Following our standard grant review process, the Violent Crime Reduction Grants were reviewed by both internal and external subject matter experts. The reviewers scored the grants based on the problem statement (15 percent of the score), the project description (50 percent of the score), the objectives (10 percent of the score) and the budget (25 percent of the score). Once the applications were reviewed and scored, OCJS's executive director and senior staff completed a second review before making the final funding recommendations. Based on the recommendations, 18 grant projects were recommended for funding for a total amount of $3,749,357.66 with the remaining portion reserved for administrative costs. Attached is a list of projects and amounts awarded to each.
