Gang Suppression: A Law Enforcement and Prosecutorial Approach To Address Gang Recruitment of Unaccompanied Alien Children
All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time (ET) on August 27, 2018.
Due Date: 8/27/2018
The Gang Suppression: A Law Enforcement and Prosecutorial Approach To Address Gang Recruitment of Unaccompanied Alien Children program is designed to reduce violent crime, gangs (specifically transnational gangs), and victimization and promote public safety in communities through implementation support for eligible communities that demonstrates their readiness to put a comprehensive strategic plan into action, based on a multilateral data-driven strategy. OJJDP is seeking proposals from applicant jurisdictions that have high levels of youth- perpetrated gun crime and gang violence and that can demonstrate a willingness and readiness to develop fully comprehensive community- and data-driven responses. Funding will support selected jurisdictions to undertake strategic planning and capacity-building work through multidisciplinary and community partnerships. Because no one policy or program can completely or effectively respond to youth violence and victimization, OJJDP encourages communities to view the research-based principles set forth in Shared Framework for Reducing Youth Violence and Promoting Well Being as a guide to stop violence and victimization.
