Frequently Asked Questions

The BCJI solicitation requests a letter of support from “one community leader.” What is a community leader?

A community leader is a person, not an agency or organization. This is a person who has a recognized formal or informal leadership role in the target community and will have an established role in the proposed program, which should be clearly stated in the application.  This person will likely be instrumental in the grantees efforts to engage community residence and get “buy-in” from design to implementation of the BCJI strategy.
