Rural Violent Crime Reduction Initiative (RVCRI) funds can be used for various purposes to support the implementation of a grantee’s violent crime reduction plans. However, there are costs that RVCRI funding cannot support. To determine whether an expense is unallowable, enter the item name or term in the table search bar. If a result appears, the expense is unallowable. 

If you have any questions about whether an expense is allowable, especially if it is tactically related, please reach out to the RVCRI team at
