Accessing Possible Funding Sources

These grants are usually awarded through Federally-funded programs awarded at the state and local levels to address specific problems. Decisions on how funds are to be allocated are based on pre-determined criteria orformula.
Discretionary grants are usually available as Federal orstate-level allocations to local governments based on a need basis to fund projects.
Department of Justice Grants:
Periodically, the U.S. Department of Justice will allocate funding for projects that aim to reduce crime in certain areas or “hotspots”or to fund special projects that serve as models for enhanced law enforcement.
Department of Homeland Security:
With the recent emphasis on protection against foreign and domestic terrorism, the U.S. government has allocated funding for projects that enhance homeland security initiatives. Various programs could entail state homeland security programs; local and urban homeland security initiatives; and the monitoring of infrastructure such as mass transit systems, rail systems, airport security, mass transportation such bus stations, trucking and logistics protection, and port security.
