Funded efforts would support the development of direct service programs and system-level changes to address the impact that the spectrum of violence has on children and youth including - bullying, physical or sexual assault, family violence (including child maltreatment and domestic violence), gang activity and violence, and gun violence. Eligible applicants include local and Tribal government entities. Applicants would be funded to support comprehensive strategies developed in response to a multi-disciplinary strategic action planning process.
