The Local Law Enforcement Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) Integration Initiative, administered by BJA in partnership with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), is a competitive grant program that provides funding to state, local, and tribal government entities that are experiencing precipitous increases in gun-related violent crime.
The purpose of this initiative is to support local and tribal jurisdictions’ capacity to work with their ATF partners to utilize intelligence, technology, and community engagement to swiftly identify unlawfully used firearms and their sources, and effectively prosecute perpetrators engaged in violent crime.
Priority consideration will be given to jurisdictions with:
High volumes of nonfatal shootings
High volumes of homicides, and
Demonstrated strong partnerships, including tribes and sheriff offices
EligibilityEligible applicants are limited to state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies, as well as governmental non-law enforcement agencies, federally recognized Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior) that perform prosecution functions, or tribal consortia consisting of two or more federally recognized Indian tribes (including tribal consortia operated as nonprofit organizations) acting as a fiscal agent for one or more prosecuting offices.
