This program aims to support and enhance efforts to develop comprehensive prevention and public safety plans to address violence in homes, schools, and communities and the consequent trauma. This initiative intends to strengthen the capacity of selected communities to collaboratively plan, align, and execute community- driven approaches focused on a shared framework of prevention; intervention and providing opportunities; and community development, along with deterrence, targeted outreach, and enforcement. This program is authorized pursuant to FY17 (OJJDP - Community-Based Violence Prevention and CEV prior year - other than TTA or research) 42 USC 5665-5666; Pub. L. No. 114-113, 129 Stat. 2242, 2307; Pub. L. No. 115-31, 131 Stat. 135, 206.

The Richmond City Health District has been successful at establishing partnerships and assessing the need for greater youth violence prevention and intervention activities. Richmond City Health District has been working to expand trauma-informed care offerings citywide, and local stakeholders would benefit from additional training in risk, resiliency, and protective factors and the theory and application of adolescent development principles. Richmond City Health District, in partnership with Inspire Workgroup, proposes to increase the safety and healthy development of Richmond’s youth by thinking collectively and strategically about addressing the underlying causes of youth violence and implementing data and evidence-driven strategies.
