Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $203,478)

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.

Youth and gang violence in Multnomah County, once largely isolated to North/Northeast neighborhoods of Portland, has followed demographic shifts to become a common occurrence in mid- and east county neighborhoods (City of Gresham) without a history of programmatic alignment and/or civic infrastructure to address it. Furthermore, a prolonged economic recession and resulting budget cuts has reduced the countys ability to offer a coordinated and effective response at the very time that public concern and actual need are increasing. In response, a consortium of Multnomah county leaders, providers, law enforcement, parole and probation, and schools has refocused its collective energy and embraced the OJJDP Comprehensive Gang Model, completed a comprehensive assessment, and has targeted its needed strategies.
