The matrix indicates in graph format the collocations of major public and private comprehensive community-based violence prevention and economic development initiatives that could assist in delinquency prevention efforts.
The matrix identifies jurisdictions from across America that are Federal Empowerment Zones, Enterprise Communities, PACT sites, Weed and Seed neighborhoods, participants in the Community Partnership Demonstration Program, or the site for other Federal or philanthropic community-wide initiatives. While the initiatives are guided by varying goals, they all have interdisciplinary local planning boards that include in their focus improving the lives of at-risk children and families. The report is divided into two parts: (1) a brief narrative description of each major Federal or private initiative, including a contact person, and similar information on major initiatives for which sites have not yet been selected; and (2) the matrix, with the vertical axis showing an alphabetical listing of States, followed by cities, counties, or jurisdictions within that State where the comprehensive initiatives are located, and the horizontal axis presenting the initiatives, identified and organized by Federal department and foundation.
