Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA state, territories, local, and Indian tribal governments, nonprofit organizations, and IHEs for programs that reduce and prevent violent crimes, and to support children and youth (up to age 18) who are experiencing violence. Funding may be used to develop and implement support services for children who are exposed to violence in their homes, schools, and communities; and to develop, enhance, and implement violent crime reduction strategies that focus on violent juvenile offenders. This program development and resource allocation decision by interested applicants should be based on currently available resources to the jurisdiction and gaps in services.

The goals of the program are to: 1) reduce the incidence of violence through accountability efforts for juvenile offenders; 2) respond to victimization of children whether as a result of violence that occurs in the school, community or family; and 3) increase protective factors to prevent juvenile violence, delinquency, and victimization. The objectives and deliverables include the following:

  • Enhance and/or develop and implement supportive services for children exposed to violence in their homes, schools, and communities.
  • Develop community-based approaches and crime-reduction strategies that focus on prevention and intervention of violent crime, and accountability for youth offenders.
  • Provide outreach strategies to increase awareness and build the capacity of families and communities to help children exposed to violence.
  • Applicants must propose and undertake their work through a multidisciplinary team of stakeholders, which may be either an existing collaborative group or one that is formed specifically for this project. This planning team should meet regularly throughout the project period to identify and address service gaps and barriers, and create a blueprint for a comprehensive network of services for children exposed to violence and their families; build the capacity of communities to help children. 

In FY 2020, and in addition to executing any statutory prioritization that may be applicable, OJP will give priority consideration to applications as follows:

  • Applications that address specific challenges that rural communities face.
  • Applications that demonstrate that the individuals who are intended to benefit from the requested grant reside in high-poverty areas or persistent-poverty counties.
  • Applications that offer enhancements to public safety in economically distressed communities (Qualified Opportunity Zones).
