Justice Dept. Plans 2014 Violence Prevention Demonstration Grants
The Justice Department's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention plans to release a Spring 2014 grant solicitation to encourage replication of successful violence prevention programs, sources tell Children and Youth Funding Report, an online grant service monitoring federal and private funding developments for organizations serving the nation's young.
The program's goal is to replicate efforts such as the Boston Gun Project, the OJJDP Comprehensive Gang Model, and the Chicago CeaseFire model, all of which seek to reduce violence in targeted communities. Applicants must focus their proposed interventions on the high-risk activities and behaviors of a small number of carefully selected community members who are likely to become involved in violent activities, such as gang and gun violence, in the immediate future.
Funding for the Community-based Violence Prevention Demonstration Program (Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number 16.123), has yet to be determined, but in recent years $1.5 million has been available.
The tentative deadline is late April 2014, with the solicitation's release expected in March. Applicants can get a jump start on the process by using the FY 2013 solicitation at: http://tinyurl.com/aet9tt3
More details on this opportunity will be posted in Children and Youth Funding Report in the coming months, with the specific deadline included in its comprehensive Grants Calendar as soon as it become available. The calendar provides grant deadlines typically in advance of Grants.gov. Organizations seeking funding for youth programs are encouraged to register for access to the service.
