WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies – today announced a $1 million grant to the City of Wichita from the Innovations in Community-Based Crime Reduction Program (CBCR) through the Department of Justice (DOJ).

“As the chief appropriator for the Department of Justice, I am pleased this federal grant will provide additional resources to Wichita to address violent crime and improve public safety within local neighborhoods,” said Sen. Moran.

The DOJ’s CBCR aims to reduce serious and violent crime by supporting a multi-faceted approach to addressing issues in high-crime neighborhoods and is intended to work in conjunction with broader neighborhood revitalization efforts.
