Who is eligible to apply/benefit from this assistance?
Applicant Eligibility
Applicants are limited to states (including territories) and units of local government (including federally recognized tribal governments, as determined by the Secretary of the Interior). Applicants must demonstrate a significant crime and violence problem affecting youth (specifically, high levels of aggravated assaults, shootings, and killings over an extended period of time) to be eligible for this program. OJJDP welcomes joint applications from two or more eligible applicants; however, one applicant must be clearly indicated as the primary applicant (for correspondence, award, and management purposes) and the others indicated as coapplicants. OJJDP expects applicants to have strong support within local government. Specifically, successful applicants will be those cities, counties, states, or tribal governments that have signed letters of support from, at a minimum, their mayor or chief executive officer, chief of police, and the local school superintendent and have proven how the implementation of their comprehensive, community-based violence prevention strategy fits into their jurisdictionÂ’s youth violence prevention plan. OJJDP may visit designated sites prior to making a final determination of award.
