in scope and responsive to the solicitation topic requirements.

The 2018 CPD program will fund projects that develop knowledge, increase awareness of effective community policing strategies, increase the skills and abilities of law enforcement and community partners, increase the number of law enforcement agencies and relevant stakeholders using proven community policing practices and institutionalize community policing practice in routine business.

The COPS Office, a federal provider of innovative, customer-focused resources that address the continuing and emerging needs of those engaged in enhancing public safety through community policing, has designed the CPD solicitation to address critical topics in the law enforcement field by building on the principles of community policing.

The 2018 CPD program has been established to fund specific projects related to the following topic areas:
(1) Incorporating Community Policing into Contemporary Broken Windows Theory Applications; (2) Supporting First Amendment Rights:
The Community Policing Approach; (3) Partnerships to Address Labor Trafficking; (4) Online Law Enforcement Training; (5) Supporting First-Line Supervisors; (6) Field-Initiated Law Enforcement Microgrants; (7) Open Topic Area; and (8) Tribal Training and Technical Assistance.

Detailed descriptions of each of these topics are available in the application guide.

There is approximately $10,000,000 million in CPD funds.

All awards are subject to the availability of appropriated funds and any modifications or additional requirements that may be imposed by law.

Funding is limited, and it is expected that this solicitation will be very competitive.

Each award or cooperative agreement is two years (24 months) in length except for the Field-Initiated Law Enforcement Microgrant awards, which are one year (12 months) in duration.

There is no local match.

Each award will be in the form of a cooperative agreement, the funding instrument used for substantial federal involvement, except for the Field-Initiative Law Enforcement Microgrant awards, which will be in the form of a grant.
