 COMPASS Funders
 National Institute of Justice
The National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the research arm of the U.S. Department of Justice, began the COMPASS project with a demonstration grant from 2001-2003. For an overview of the federal program please click here.
 Community Block Grant Administration
The Community Block Grant Administration works collaboratively with non-profit groups, government agencies, and public/private coalitions to coordinate activity that increases home ownership and property values, reduces crime, and promotes greater employment and business activity. CDBG has provided funding for the COMPASS project in 2003-2010.

As a component of the Justice Department, the mission of the COPS Office is to advance community policing in jurisdictions of all sizes across the country.

COPS provides grants to tribal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to hire and train community policing professionals, acquire and deploy cutting-edge crime-fighting technologies, and develop and test innovative policing strategies. COPS will be providing the funding for the COMPASS project during 2003-2004. See more information about the COPS office and the programs it supports at:
