This solicitation will primarily focus on the prevention of exposure to violence and early intervention to support children and families who are impacted.

There are two categories of funding available under this solicitation:
Category 1: Project Sites. Funding under this category can be used to develop and/or enhance support services for children exposed to violence in their homes, schools, and communities; and to develop, enhance, and implement Community Violence Intervention (CVI) strategies (i.e., community-based gun violence interventions such as street outreach, violence interrupters, group violence intervention, and hospital-based violence interventions) that focus on addressing juvenile delinquency and crime through informed approaches. These approaches can also include efforts to build trust between, youth, the community, and law enforcement. Applicants using CVI strategies will receive priority consideration.

Category 2: Training and Technical Assistance. In addition to supporting program implementation and direct service activities, the initiative will fund a training and technical assistance provider to support the Category 1 project sites and provide general training activities focused on exposure to violence as well as youth violence prevention and intervention.
