Grant Description
Grant to a USA nonprofit organization, for-profit organization, or IHE to operate a resource center addressing criminal activity. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The selected applicant will provide technical assistance and training to communities on developing evidence-based strategies or promising models to prevent and deter youth from joining gangs and reduce youth gang violence.

This program furthers the Department’s mission by supporting states’ and communities’ responses to gang-related crime and violence and gang activity by youth and adults. OJJDP will award a cooperative agreement to continue the activities of the National Gang Center (NGC), which provides training and technical assistance to OJP-funded programs and communities across the country to address the issues of youth gun and gang violence. NGC tracks current research and trends on gangs and maintains a database of comprehensive information on the development and implementation of effective gang prevention, intervention, and suppression strategies.

OJJDP’s Comprehensive Gang Model (CGM) offers an evidence-based framework for the coordination of multiple data-driven, anti-gang, and violence-reduction strategies to address the impact of serious and violent youth street gang problems. The CGM includes a set of five core strategies.
