Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $737,770)

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 St. Louis Youth Violence Prevention Partnership (YVPP) was established in 2014 through the City of St. Louis’ Department of Health to reduce youth violence through a holistic and evidence-based framework of Prevention, Intervention, Enforcement, and Reentry (PIER framework). The Safe & Thriving Saint Louis (STSTL) collaborative initiative aims to develop a comprehensive, cross-sector, multilevel plan with approaches that will measurably deter youth violence in all forms and its disruptive, destructive effects in homes, schools, and neighborhoods. Buoyed by the proposed STSTL initiative, YVPP will move from its existing efforts to a comprehensive and coordinated communication system among stakeholders, and actionable framework with specific and measurable tactics and strategies, through four specific activities: (1) development and expansion of YVPP leadership, subcommittees, and membership with specific duties; (2) engagement of residents in neighborhoods of high impact; (3) development and implementation of a community safety scorecard that aggregates qualitative and quantitative data across the youth violence continuum; and (4) creation of an action-orientated strategic plan that will provide both policy and programmatic action steps for YVPP, including government agencies, community-based organizations, residents, and other key stakeholders.
