Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government and Tribal agencies, IHEs, and school districts for programs to reduce violence among youth. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended for programs to develop and implement prevention, intervention, and suppression strategies that aim to reduce youth gun and gang violence.

Specific Information:

  • Funding for this program is to prevent and reduce youth violence, including youth gang violence. Applicants must target their proposed prevention, intervention, or suppression strategies to work with those youth who are most likely to be involved in violent activities in the immediate future. Interventions developed for this target population should include improved coordination of existing resources and activities that support multiple, complementary antiviolence strategies. Applicants using Community Violence Intervention (CVI) strategies (i.e., community-based gun violence interventions such as street outreach, violence interrupters, group violence intervention, and hospital-based violence interventions) will receive priority consideration. In addition, communities are encouraged to include efforts to build trust between youth, the community, and law enforcement as a part of their overall program approach.

OJP Policy Priority Areas

  • The Department of Justice is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights, increases access to justice, supports crime victims, protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. In FY 2021, OJP will give priority consideration in award decisions to applications that demonstrate ways in which their projects will advance one or more of these areas.
  • To receive priority consideration for advancing one or more of the Department’s priorities, the applicant must provide a sufficient narrative explanation as an attachment, that specifies how the project will advance the promotion of civil rights, access to justice, support to crime victims, protecting the public from crime and evolving threats, or building trust between law enforcement and the community.
  • In addition, OJP will give priority consideration, if applicable, to applicants that demonstrate that the individuals who are intended to benefit from the requested grant reside in high-poverty areas or persistent-poverty counties.
  • Priority consideration is one of many factors that OJP considers in making funding decisions and is not a guarantee of an award.
