Frequently Asked Questions

With regard to describing the nature and scope of the crime problem in the program narrative, how much data is required now as opposed to during the planning period when working with a research partner?

The applicant should provide all of the information that they have available to support their need statement, particularly community level, police beat or census tract data. BJA recognizes that the applicant will not have all data needed, and during the planning phase should work with the research partner to assess and validate data using new or other data sources and community input. Once the issue is refined and finalized, the grantees will also be expected to continue to collect data about crime and programmatic efforts and to aggregate and consistently analyze the program to make needed program refinements and changes. It for this reason, that BJA will expect the proposed strategy and budget to be revised to address these enhancements.
