Read this Fact Sheet on Programs that Address Hate Crimes

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) recently developed a comprehensive fact sheet on BJA grant funding resources that address hate crimes, crimes that impact civil rights, and other bias-motivated and hate incidents. The Department of Justice (DOJ) is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights, increasing access to justice, supporting crime victims, protecting the public from crime and evolving threats, and building trust between law enforcement and the community. Hate crimes can be more violent and involve greater victim injury as compared to other crimes, yet they are substantially underreported. To counter this, prosecution agencies are looking for ways to engage with local communities to build more collaborative solutions and increase support to victims and their families. This fact sheet provides a complete list of BJA-funded hate crime resources, a brief description of each program, and links to find additional information.
