COPS Hiring Program (CHP)

Archive: FY 2010 CHP Awards | FY 2011 CHP

A competitive grant program that provides funding directly to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies nationwide to hire and/or rehire full-time sworn officers to increase their community policing capacity and crime prevention efforts. CHP grants provide 100 percent funding for approved entry-level salaries and fringe benefits for three years (36 months) for newly-hired, full-time sworn officer positions, or for rehired officers who have been laid off or are scheduled to be laid off on a future date as a result of local budget cuts. Up to $298 million was appropriated for CHP in fiscal year 2010.
