Awards_OJJDPThe U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is seeking proposals from applicant jurisdictions struggling with high levels of youth gang violence to implement one or more components of the OJJDP Comprehensive Gang Model as part of a community- and data-driven desistance/diversion response to gang-related crime and violence. OJJDP’s gang and youth violence prevention strategy is based on the recognition that preventing and reducing gang crime and violence requires a shared framework of strategic and coordinated delivery of programs, services, and practices across multiple sectors—including substance addiction programming and mental health counseling—that balance community development, prevention, intervention, and targeted suppression and enforcement.

The solicitation provides further details about the program. Applications are due by June 24.
