is a core component of the NRI strategy.
BNCP focuses on the nationï¿½s neediest neighborhoods, those that struggle with such issues as crime, poor health, struggling schools, inadequate housing, and access to employment BNCP seeks to assist neighborhoods in developing the capacity to undertake comprehensive planning and development activities and to partner with neighborhoods in the long-term process of rebuilding and revitalization.This program is being jointly funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the U. S. Department of Education.

The competitively selected BNCP TTA Coordinator will coordinate, provide and/or broker needed support to the selected sites, through a variety of TTA activities outlined in the following solicitation.
