Citizen Corps funds currently available must be used for activities described in the Citizen Corps guidance materials provided to each State's designated point of contact. Grantees will be expected to develop a jurisdiction-wide strategic plan for the Citizen Corps initiative and to implement the elements of that plan. Of the funding provided for Citizen Corps activities, 75 percent must be passed through by the grantees to local governments. Localities receiving grants may use the funding for Citizen Corps Council organizing activities; for organizing, training, equipping, and maintaining CERTs; for defraying the added expense of liability coverage for CERT participants; and for outreach and public education campaigns to promote Citizen Corps and community and family safety measures, to include printing, marketing, advertising, and special events.
