Grants of up to $20,000 to Pennsylvania government agencies and law enforcement agencies for professional training to respond to crises. Applicants must complete an online registration process prior to submitting an application. The purpose of the program is to train first responders to deal with crises involving individuals with behavioral health issues and individuals with disabilities.

The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), in collaboration with the Department of Human Service (DHS), Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS), are announcing the availability of federal Transformation Transfer Initiative (TTI) funds to support Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training for municipal law enforcement personnel and criminal justice practitioners and individuals who work in professions related to crisis services (emergency dispatchers and communications personnel; counselors, social workers, and certified peer specialists; emergency management services personnel; and fire fighters).

The goal of this initiative is to provide resources for CIT training by supporting costs affiliated with the training of emergency/response personnel, certification of CIT Coordinators, and participation and completion of CIT Train-the-Trainer curriculum. PCCD and DHS/OMHSAS anticipate municipalities establishing CIT programs or expanding existing CIT programs will experience:

  • Enhanced diversion/treatment opportunities and connections to care in the community for individuals with behavioral health and/or intellectual disabilities;
  • Increased officer and public safety during crisis situations; and
  • A decrease in the number of individuals with behavioral health and/or other intellectual disabilities who become justice involved or from further penetrating the criminal justice system. 

Funds may support training of emergency/response personnel, CIT Coordinator certification, or completion of a CIT Train-the-Trainer course. Funds may be used to reimburse agencies for overtime for personnel, as appropriate, and related training expenses including, but not limited to, instructor fees, travel, and training materials key to the delivery of CIT training and certification.
