Deschutes County’s Local Public Safety Coordinating Council (LPSCC) invites applications from Deschutes County non-profit organizations that are interested in receiving a grant for up to $170,000.00 to help local residents who have been victimized by crime.  The deadline to apply is August 17, 2015 at 8:00 AM. 

The Oregon Criminal Justice Commission (CJC) is administering the Justice Reinvestment Grant Program.  The amount of money available in each Oregon county for crime victim services non-profit programs is determined by population.  This is a one-time solicitation, offering support for a maximum period of 24 months.

LPSCC was established by the Oregon Legislative Assembly to coordinate local criminal justice policy. LPSCC will select one or more community based nonprofit victim services program proposals to include in Deschutes County’s Justice Reinvestment Grant application to the CJC.  It is CJC that will make the final decision as to whether to fund the community based nonprofit victim services program(s) contained in LPSCC’s application.  Once CJC approves one or more community based nonprofit victim services program(s), LPSCC will serve as the local administrator of the grant program.
