2017 COPS Office Grant Program Solicitations
COMING SOON!

President Trump signed legislation which includes funding for a number of COPS Office grant programs in FY 2017. As a result, I am pleased to announce that we anticipate opening and accepting applications for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 COPS Office grant programs in the near future. Please find brief descriptions of our FY 2017 programs below.

COPS Hiring Program (CHP)

CHP is a competitive grant program that funds the hiring of full-time, sworn, career law enforcement officers. CHP provides 75 percent of the approved entry-level salaries and fringe benefits of each full-time officer, up to $125,000 per officer position, over the three year (36 month) grant period. State, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies that have primary law enforcement authority are eligible to apply.

Community Policing Development (CPD)

CPD is a competitive grant program that enhances the practice of community policing in law enforcement agencies and helps to reduce crime and enhance public safety in communities through training and technical assistance, development of innovative community policing strategies, applied research, guidebooks, and best practices that are national in scope. State, local, tribal law enforcement, public governmental agencies, nonprofit institutions, universities, community groups, and faith-based organizations are eligible to apply for CPD funding.

COPS Anti-Methamphetamine Program (CAMP)

CAMP is a competitive grant program that advances public safety by providing funds to investigate illicit activities related to the manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine. Only state-level law enforcement agencies are eligible to apply; however, local law enforcement agencies are encouraged to partner with them on CAMP-funded projects.

COPS Anti-Heroin Task Force (AHTF)

AHTF is a competitive grant program that assists state law enforcement agencies in states with high per capita levels of primary treatment admissions for both heroin and other opioids. AHTF funds shall be used for investigative purposes to locate or investigate illicit activities related to the distribution of heroin or unlawful distribution of prescription opioids. Only state-level law enforcement agencies are eligible to apply; however, local law enforcement agencies are encouraged to partner with them on AHTF-funded projects.

To assist applicants in preparing for the FY 2017 application process, please review the "Preparing Your Application" document found on our website. This document provides helpful information on steps your agency can take now to ensure a smooth application process and minimize the chance of problems or delays. Please note that all applications will be accepted electronically via a two-step process through Grants.gov and the COPS Office Agency Portal.

Detailed instructions about how to apply for all available programs will be placed on the COPS Office website soon, along with information about application submission deadlines and other important details, so please check the website regularly for updates.
