DOJ Taps LISC for Troubled Communities Grant

October 06, 2012  | 

The U.S. Department of Justice has awarded $1 million to the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) to help attack crime hot spots in 15 U.S. cities to improve the quality of life in troubled communities.

LISC was awarded $1 million to guide the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation (BCJI) program that connects law enforcement, civic, and economic leaders with neighbors to make streets safe so business can grow. LISC's grant was part of $11 million in BCJI funds awarded to help lift up cities.

The new BCJI grant program will fund collaborative initiatives via the Institute for Public Strategies in Chula Vista, Calif.; city of Lowell, Mass.; city of Baltimore; Detroit Crime Commission; city of Omaha, Neb.; Center for Court Innovation in New York, N.Y.; the Westminister Foundation in Buffalo, N.Y.; the East End Community Services Corp. in Dayton, Ohio; the Multnomah County (Ore.) District Attorney's Office; Mt. Vernon Manor in Philadelphia; the city of Austin, Texas; the Housing Authority of San Antonio, Texas; the city of Seattle; the city of Milwaukee; and the city of Charleston, West Va.

The BCJI program is a part of the Obama administration's larger Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, which brings together the departments of Education, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, Health and Human Services, and Treasury to align federal programs focused on neighborhood revitalization and to implement pilot programs between agencies.
