Grants to USA nonprofits, for-profits, IHEs, and local and tribal government agencies for school-based programs to address youth victimization and violence. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support evidence-based prevention, intervention, and accountability efforts in a school-based setting. The goals of the program are to (1) reduce the incidence of school violence through accountability efforts for offenders; (2) respond to victimization, exposure to violence, and trauma as a result of violence that occurs in the school, community, or family; (3) improve school safety and climate; and (4) prevent violence, delinquency, and victimization in the targeted community.
There are two categories of funding available under this solicitation.
- Category 1: Project Sites. This program supports the efforts of eligible applicants to develop or enhance their capacity to address youth violence and victimization through school-based programming and interventions targeting student and community needs. All program activities must occur within a school setting, and this can include programming in either public or private schools.
- 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.
These programs are delivered to all students in a school or grade level and allow them to develop skills such as emotional self-awareness and control, positive social skills, problem solving, and conflict resolution. While community organizations provide programming that addresses exposure to violence, and do so successfully, providing a schoolbased approach will increase the availability of interventions in the targeted community and facilitate ease of participation. Youth (and their parents/caregivers) will be able to access programming through one site rather than having to access services through multiple entities at different locations. This approach may increase participation rates and ensure that youth are receiving a wide range of interventions and services.
OJJDP is seeking proposals from applicant jurisdictions working to reduce the adverse impact of violence on youth, families, and neighborhoods through implementing school-based approaches that support multitiered efforts focused on prevention, intervention, and accountability. Applicants must propose and undertake their work through a multidisciplinary multiagency team of stakeholders that can be an existing collaborative group or one that is formed specifically for this project. At a minimum, stakeholders should include county/local public sector leadership, educators and leadership from the target school(s), courts/probation, law enforcement, mental health, child welfare and social services, and youth-serving community organizations. OJJDP recognizes youth and families as major stakeholders and strongly supports positive youth development and leadership opportunities for youth in its programs. As such, the collaborative group must include youth/student engagement and participation as well as family/parent/caregiver representation. A description of the team structure must be referenced in the program narrative and can be submitted as an attachment.
