Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, public agencies, IHEs, school districts, and Tribes for programs to support youth and children who have been exposed to violence. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Funding is intended to provide communities with the resources to develop and provide support services for children exposed to violence as well as training and technical assistance to child and family-serving organizations to help them better recognize and help families at risk for violence.

There are two categories of funding available under this solicitation:

  • Category 1: Project Sites. Funding under this category can be used to develop and/or enhance support services for children exposed to violence in their homes, schools, and communities; and to develop, enhance, and implement Community Violence Intervention (CVI) strategies (i.e., community-based gun violence interventions such as street outreach, violence interrupters, group violence intervention, and hospital-based violence interventions) that focus on addressing juvenile delinquency and crime through informed approaches. These approaches can also include efforts to build trust between, youth, the community, and law enforcement. Applicants using CVI strategies will receive priority consideration. Please see further information under Priority areas.
  • Category 2: Training and Technical Assistance. In addition to supporting program implementation and direct service activities, the initiative will fund a training and technical assistance provider to support the Category 1 project sites and provide general training activities focused on exposure to violence as well as youth violence prevention and intervention. 

The overall goal of the program is to build the capacity of families and communities to help children exposed to violence.

Objectives:

  • Improve family and community responses to children exposed to violence.
  • Increase protective factors to prevent juvenile violence, delinquency, and victimization.
  • Support communities to develop, design, and deliver prevention and intervention strategies to support children exposed to violence.

For further details on the deliverables for each category, see https://ojjdp.ojp.gov/funding/fy2021/O-OJJDP-2021-100002#page=5.

Priority Areas:

The Department of Justice is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights, increases access to justice, supports crime victims, protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement and the community. In FY 2021, OJP will give priority consideration in award decisions to applications that demonstrate ways in which their projects will advance one or more of these areas. In addition, OJP will give priority consideration, if applicable, to applicants that demonstrate that the individuals who are intended to benefit from the requested grant reside in high-poverty areas or persistent-poverty counties. For more details about priority areas, see https://ojjdp.ojp.gov/funding/fy2021/O-OJJDP-2021-100002#page=6.
