HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) wanted to help make state government more accessible to state citizens. It has unveiled its redesigned Web site.

"Our Web site contains a broad range of information about the services offered by PCCD, but it's been organized into a more user-friendly format," PCCD Chairman Jim Eisenhower said.

The Web site features information on current funding opportunities that exist for organizations seeking grants from PCCD and a revised and simplified application form. Other forms available online include the crime victim's compensation claim form and applications for programs and conferences sponsored or recommended by PCCD.

The site outlines PCCD's major community revitalization programs, including the Weed and Seed and Communities That Care initiatives. Visitors to the site also may obtain information about PCCD's training programs, including terrorism awareness and prevention, Internet safety, crime prevention and child abuse and neglect prevention.

The updated site also offers information on PCCD's research projects and links to numerous statistical resources, including the Pennsylvania Youth Survey and the annual Uniform Crime Report produced by Pennsylvania State Police. Additionally, site visitors may download radio public service announcements and numerous PCCD publications.

PCCD is the commonwealth's lead agency for criminal justice policy issues. During the 2002-2003 fiscal year, PCCD distributed more than $140 million in state and federal funding to programs that are proven to prevent crime and strengthen communities. PCCD also provides essential support services to law enforcement agencies and offers financial assistance to victims of crime.
