Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $300,000)

The Blueprints for Gang Prevention project will develop and experimentally test new gang intervention programs. The project will include an advisory board of experts familiar with current Blueprints for Violence Prevention projects who will identify Model and Promising Blueprint Programs relevant for gang control purposes; and an Advisory Board of leading gang scholars with expertise in gang research and the evaluation of gang control programs. Together, they will identify Blueprint programs that, with modification, have the greatest potential to be effective for gang members. The best of these programs can then be implemented and evaluated. Funds were transferred from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to support this project.
