Funding for this program is to prevent and reduce youth violence, including youth gang violence. Applicants must target their proposed prevention, intervention, or suppression strategies to work with those youth who are most likely to be involved in violent activities in the immediate future. Interventions developed for this target population should include improved coordination of existing resources and activities that support multiple, complementary antiviolence strategies.

Applicants using 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) will receive priority consideration. In addition, communities are encouraged to include efforts to build trust between youth, the community, and law enforcement as a part of their overall program approach.
