As we celebrate Economic Development Week this week, we remain resolute on the purpose behind our efforts bring growth to our ECG communities, be it expansion, relocation, or new business. Each month we curate grants and funding opportunities to assist our #GAEnergyCities and communities. Below is our compilation of funding options tailored to your specific needs. Our featured opportunity is the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Hiring Program (CHP) grant from the U.S. Department of Justice.

The FY 2024 COPS Hiring Program is designed to advance public safety through community policing by addressing the full-time sworn officer needs of state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies nationwide. CHP provides funds directly to law enforcement agencies to hire new or rehire additional career law enforcement officers and to increase their community policing capacity and crime-prevention efforts.

FY 2024 CHP awards will provide up to 75 percent of the entry-level salary and fringe benefits for each approved position for a three-year period. There is a minimum 25 percent local cash match (cost share) requirement unless a waiver is approved. The maximum federal share per officer position is $125,000 over the three-year period unless a local match waiver is approved.
