For those interested, BJA will be hosting a webinar Tuesday, May 10th at 3:00pm. It is highly recommend to attend if you are considering applying for this grant. Please see below for more details and the link to register.

CVIPI seeks to prevent and reduce violent crime in communities by supporting comprehensive, evidence-based violence intervention and prevention programs based on partnerships between community residents, local government agencies, victim service providers, community-based organizations, law enforcement, hospitals, researchers, and other community stakeholders.

This webinar will provide details and guidance for potential applicants to the following solicitations:

The presenters will discuss the purpose and goals of the opportunities; review eligibility requirements; and address frequently asked questions.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance is administering this Office of Justice Programs initiative, working in partnership with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Office for Victims of Crime, and the National Institute of Justice. This collaborative approach will help ensure jurisdictions have access to the expertise to address community violence that involves both youth, young adults and adults, both those perpetrating this violence and those who are victims of the violence.

Tuesday, May 10, 2022 3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. ET

Please see the following link and the attachment for information on a new federal grant opportunity due June 21 2022. This grant comes through the U.S. Department of Justice, not PCCD, therefore I do not have any direct involvement in it.

Please note: that this grant program will give very few awards, will be highly competitive, and has fairly demanding requirements of grantees. This opportunity maybe best suited for larger, more established organizations that have the capacity to handle all of the excess administrative demands.

FY 2022 Office of Justice Programs Community Based Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative

  • $50M in total grants nationally

  • 3-year competitive grants, up to $2M each (total, not per year)

  • Evidence-based or evidence-informed programming

  • While there are 7 total categories, I want to draw your attention to the 2 categories open to community-based orgs: planning/implementation, and enhancement/expansion. DOJ is only expecting to make ~15 total grants nationwide in these categories, and community orgs must partner ahead of time with an academic institution on evaluation.
