Youth Gang Suppression Implementation Grants
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is seeking applications for funding under the fiscal year (FY) 2019 Youth Gang Suppression Implementation Grants Program. This program furthers the Department’s mission by strengthening community capacity to stem violence and reduce youth offending and victimization, improving the response to children’s exposure to violence, and enhancing public safety.
This program solicitation is based on the recognition that sustainable gang suppression efforts require a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to identify and address any gaps and service needs for affected youth. The OJJDP Comprehensive Gang Model is a set of five core strategies—community mobilization, opportunities provision, social intervention, suppression, and organizational change and development—that offer a comprehensive, collaborative approach designed to prevent and reduce gang violence.
Eligible applicants are limited to states (including territories), units of local government, federally recognized tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior), nonprofit organizations and for-profit organizations (including tribal nonprofit and for-profit organizations), and institutions of higher education (including tribal institutions of higher education).
