U.S. law enforcement agencies are invited to apply to participate in the Crisis Intervention Training Model project, which is a part of a larger program within the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s (BJA) Preventing Violence Against Law Enforcement Officers and Ensuring Officer Resilience and Survivability (VALOR) Initiative. This project is managed through Policy Research Associates (PRA) with its partners: the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), CIT International (CITI), and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). A total of four (4) agencies will be selected and will work directly with PRA and its partners to strategically implement a comprehensive and sustainable CIT strategy for their agency from June 2018 to May 2019. Through this program, agencies will improve their response to and interactions with persons with mental illness.

We thank you in advance for your interest and look forward to reviewing your application.
