Additional Information on Eligibility:

Applicants are limited to local units of government, including state agencies (only if targeted to a local community), public agencies, and federally recognized tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior). Units of government may partner as co-applicants, when necessary, to achieve the goals of this solicitation; however, a lead agency must be identified. Lead applicants must partner with a collaborative body that includes representation from city/county leadership, law enforcement, public health, courts, workforce development, housing and urban development, educators, and faith and community members. Partners should collectively have expertise in prevention, intervention, enforcement, and reentry. To be considered, applicants must provide the following: • A signed letter of commitment, at a minimum, by the mayor, chief of police (or equivalent law enforcement executive), and superintendent of schools within the locality. • A demonstrated capacity to convene an array of community leaders and stakeholders and to work with OJJDP and its federal partners to build multidisciplinary partnerships and develop balanced approaches and data-driven strategies to address youth violence in their localities. • Substantiated high rates of youth violence. • An identification of the primary local coordinator who will build partnerships and lead the 6- month development or enhancement of a youth violence prevention plan—based on local data—that will address the nature of youth violence and its causes and an inventory of resources that already exist to address that violence through prevention, intervention, suppression, and reentry strategies and programs. 

Agency Name

Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention


Youth and gang violence affects communities—urban, suburban, and rural— across the entire United States. Young people can be perpetrators, victims, or witnesses to violence. Some violent acts, such as bullying, can cause as much emotional harm as physical harm. Other acts, such as assault, with or without weapons, can lead to serious injury or death. At the direction of President Obama, the Departments of Justice and Education launched the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention (Forum) to begin a national conversation concerning youth and gang violence, raise awareness, and elevate the issue to national significance. The project that this solicitation supports seeks to competitively select as many as four new sites to join the Forum’s participating localities of Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Memphis, Salinas, and San Jose. The FY 2012 National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention Expansion Project is authorized by the Department of Justice Authorization Act, 2012, Pub. L. No. 112-55, 125 Stat. 552, 617.
