OJJDP FY 2014 Comprehensive AntiGang Strategies and Programs

OJJDP FY 2014 Comprehensive AntiGang Strategies and Programs – Youth gangs continue to have a significant adverse impact on youth, families, and communities across America. A growing number of communities have adopted OJJDP’s Comprehensive Gang Model, a multistrategy, multidisciplinary approach that has proven to be effective in reducing gang activity. The fiscal year 2014 Comprehensive Antigang Strategies and Programs solicitation provides funding for localities to enhance coordination of federal, state, and local resources in support of community partnerships implementing the following antigang programs: primary prevention, secondary prevention, gang intervention, and targeted gang enforcement. This program is authorized pursuant to paragraph (3)(B) under the Juvenile Justice heading in the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2014, P.L. 113-76; 128 Stat. 5, 64. Eligible applicants are limited to states (including territories), units of local government (including federally recognized tribal governments, as determined by the Secretary of the Interior), and nonprofit organizations (including tribal nonprofit organizations). Applicants must have signed letters of support for the community-based antigang strategy from, at a minimum, the mayor, chief of police, and local school superintendent in the jurisdiction in which the program will be based. OJJDP welcomes applications that involve two or more entities; however, one eligible entity must be the applicant and the others must be proposed as subrecipients. The applicant must be the entity with primary responsibility for conducting and leading the program. Current Closing Date for Applications: July 14, 2014.
