Applicants must demonstrate a significant crime and violence problem affecting youth
(specifically, high levels of aggravated assaults, shootings, and killings over an extended period of time) to be eligible for this program.
OJJDP welcomes joint applications from two or more eligible applicants; however, one applicant
must be clearly indicated as the primary applicant (for correspondence, award, and management purposes) and the others indicated as coapplicants.
OJJDP expects applicants to have strong support within local government. Specifically, successful applicants will be those cities, counties, states, or tribal governments that have signed letters of support from, at a minimum, their mayor or chief executive officer, chief of police, and the local school superintendent and have proven how the implementation of their comprehensive, community-based violence prevention strategy fits into their jurisdiction’s youth violence prevention plan.
OJJDP may visit designated sites prior to making a final determination of award.
Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention
A growing number of communities have adopted multi-strategy, multi-disciplinary approaches to
reduce the violence that has adversely affected youth, families, and neighborhoods across
America. This program provides funding for localities to support federal, state, and local partnerships to replicate proven multi-disciplinary, community-based strategies to reduce violence. This program will be authorized by an Act appropriating FY 2013 funds for the Department of Justice.
