Abstract: THE CACP WAS ESTABLISHED AS PART OF LEAA BY THE CRIME CONTROL ACT OF 1976. AN APPROPRIATION OF $15 MILLION PER YEAR FOR 3 YEARS WAS ALLOCATED TO PROVIDE COMMUNITY ANTICRIME GRANTS TO COMMUNITY GROUPS. THE CACP WAS SET UP TO INSURE THAT GRANTEES HAVE THE MANAGERIAL CAPABILITY TO PLAN FOR AND ADMINISTER FEDERAL FUNDS; TO UTILIZE THE POTENTIAL WHICH EXISTS TO INFLUENCE OTHER COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT MONIES IN WAYS WHICH CAN ALLEVIATE NEIGHBORHOOD CRIME PROBLEMS; AND TO MAKING THE MOST OF THE POTENTIAL TO INSTITUTIONALIZE ANTICRIME PROGRAMS, SO THAT THEY MAY CONTINUE AFTER THE REDUCTION OF LEAA FUNDS. THE REPORT CONTENDS THAT CAAS AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATIONS ARE THE MOST LOGICAL LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS TO ADMINISTER CACP GRANTS. IT PRESENTS EACH OF THE LEAA GUIDELINES FOR THE GRANTING OF CACP FUNDS AND SUGGESTS MEASURES THAT THE LOCAL CAA MIGHT TAKE TO INSURE THAT IT IS FULFILLING ALL THE CONDITIONS OF THE GUIDELINES. (TAG)
