In June 2022, President Biden signed the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act into law, which invests an additional $250 million in critical CVI strategies over the next five years. CVIPI, among other resources provided by the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, will help seed and expand the community infrastructure needed to complement law enforcement activities and strengthen our neighborhoods.
