Community Project Funding Requests

Subcommittee/Agency/Account: Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies/Justice/Byrne Justice Assistance Grants

Project Name: Trauma Recovery Center for Victims of Violent Crime

Recipient: City of Albuquerque, Albuquerque Police Department

Address: 1 Civic Plaza, Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87102.

Amount Requested: $1,000,000

Project Description and Explanation: The funding would be used to initiate the development of a Trauma Recovery Center to serve victims of violent crime. The gap between the number of people who experience violent crime and those who receive help, beyond the resolution of their case, is large and even larger for communities of color and other under-served and unserved victims of violent crime. The Trauma Recovery Center model provides assertive outreach and engagement to engage crime victims in services. Trauma Recovery Center model evaluations have found that participants engage more in services than others in similar situations and show more improvement in overall health.

Subcommittee/Agency/Account: Labor, Health, Human Services, and Related Agencies/Health Resources and Services Administration/Program Management

Project Title: Renovation of Research Facilities

Recipient: The University of New Mexico

Address: Albuquerque, New Mexico, 87131.

Amount Requested: $1,500,000

Project Description and Explanation: The funding would be used to renovate outdated research labs. Renovated state-of-the-art facilities enable new discoveries and treatments improving lifespan and quality of life for the state and US. These aging facilities create significant challenges in the operational capabilities of infrastructure, the design of facilities to support current research models and the ability to support growth in research programs. When both the quantity and age of wet laboratory research space is compared with a range of peer state university health sciences centers, it is clear, HSC facilities are significantly older resulting in 1) older models of research facilities; 2) higher maintenance and operating costs; and 3) reduced competitiveness in the ability to use space as a tool for recruiting and retaining top research teams.
