Grants to USA and territories state, local, and tribal law enforcement and prosecution agencies for activities to combat hate crimes. Interested applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support outreach, education, reporting and identifying, and investigation and prosecution of hate crimes. The goal of the program is to increase public awareness and reporting of hate crimes, as well as to enhance law enforcement and prosecution strategies to prevent and respond to hate crimes, bringing justice for victims and stakeholders impacted by these crimes.
The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Program (Shepard/Byrd Hate Crimes Program) supports state, local, and tribal law enforcement and prosecution agencies in their outreach to and education of the public, victims, and their staff and partners on hate crimes. This program also supports the investigation and prosecution of hate crimes. Hate crimes (sometimes called bias-motivated crimes) are criminal offenses motivated by some form of bias toward a victim on the basis of their perceived or actual race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or disability.
In response to the increase in hate crimes, particularly involving Asian Americans, BJA is seeking applications that employ a comprehensive approach to prevent and address hate crimes, including outreach to and education of the public and victims, education of law enforcement and prosecution staff and partners, response to hate incidents and crimes, and the investigation and prosecution of these hate crimes. Funding can also be used to address serial violent hate crime perpetrators (having or suspected of having committed more than one violent hate crime).
This funding is designed to assist jurisdictions in addressing hate crimes and to assist victims and communities that are facing an increase in hate crimes. The Shepard/Byrd Hate Crimes Program explores opportunities to support and encourage the establishment of partnerships between law enforcement and prosecution agencies and community-based organizations to prevent discrimination, bullying, harassment, and hate crimes, as well as expand the confidence of victims to report hate incidents and crimes.
