NEWS / Department of Justice on Behalf of Partner Agencies Releases Solicitation to Build Capacity in Distr

WASHINGTON – The Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) today announced the Building Neighborhood Capacity Program (BNCP) Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Coordinator Solicitation, part of an innovative approach to build capacity in distressed neighborhoods. The BNCP, a core component of the Administration’s Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI), seeks an experienced TTA coordinator to help an initial group of five neighborhoods build capacity for revitalization and resiliency to prevent and fight crime.

Led by the White House Domestic Policy Council, the NRI brings together the Departments of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Education, Justice, Health and Human Services and Treasury to align federal programs supporting neighborhood revitalization and to implement interagency pilot programs, such as BNCP. This solicitation is announced on behalf of the NRI and funded through the Departments of Justice, HUD and Education.

“While there are different streams of federal aid available to neighborhoods in need, some communities lack the capacity to qualify for and use this assistance,” said U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. “This program will build capacity in those neighborhoods, so residents, businesses and leaders are better able to collectively solve problems, identify, access and leverage existing resources, and put improvements in place. Given fiscal realities, this is a significant step towards ensuring that all Americans have access to safe, healthy neighborhoods with affordable housing, good jobs, quality schools and essential services.”

BNCP complements traditional, program-based public and private investment, especially federally-funded programs. An interagency federal team led by the NRI will provide guidance and manage BNCP activities. BJA will oversee the coordinator in consultation with the NRI team.

“The NRI recognizes that interconnected problems require interconnected solutions,” said Laurie O. Robinson, Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Justice Programs. “By breaking down the silos that often exist in federal assistance, this initiative empowers communities to more easily and fully leverage available, existing resources and effect lasting, meaningful change in distressed neighborhoods.”

The Office of Justice Programs (OJP), headed by Assistant Attorney General Laurie O. Robinson, provides federal leadership in developing the nation’s capacity to prevent and control crime, administer justice, and assist victims. OJP has six bureaus and offices: the Bureau of Justice Assistance; the Bureau of Justice Statistics; the National Institute of Justice; the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention; the Office for Victims of Crime; and the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART). More information about OJP and its components can be found at www.ojp.gov.
