How is the gun buyback funded?

The program is funded with money provided to the city as part of the Coronavirus Local Fiscal Relief Fund approved by Congress earlier this year. The bill recognizes that one by-product of the pandemic has been an increase in violence and authorizes recipients to spend some of the money on efforts to reduce violence.
