Community Based Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative Solicitation Released

Community Based Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative (CVIPI) logo

The FY24 Office of Justice Programs (OJP) Community Based Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative Site-Based funding opportunity is now available.

With this solicitation, OJP seeks to prevent and reduce violent crime in communities by supporting comprehensive, evidence-based community-based violence intervention and prevention programs. These programs include efforts to address gang and gun violence, based on partnerships among community residents, local government agencies, victim service providers, community-based organizations, law enforcement, hospitals, researchers, and other community stakeholders.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is administering the opportunity, working in partnership with OJP’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and Office for Victims of Crime (OVC). This collaborative approach will help ensure jurisdictions have access to expertise to address community violence that involves youth, young adults, and adults, both as the individuals responsible for perpetrating this violence and as those who are victims of it. Awards made under this solicitation may be managed by BJA, OJJDP, or OVC, depending on the nature of the project.

Learn more about the opportunity and register for a solicitation webinar taking place on April 25, 2024, at 1 p.m. ET.
