Grants to USA government agencies, for-profits, nonprofit organizations, IHEs, and Tribes for projects to address violence in youth populations. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended for applicants to develop and implement a youth violence prevention strategy targeting middle and high school age youth and/or those youth having multiple risk factors for violence. 

Applicants should discuss how they will implement the following deliverables in their application that will be delivered as a result of this program.

  • Develop new or enhance existing direct service programs for youth with multiple risk factors for violence, including youth gang/group involvement and youth gang/group violence.
  • If proposing a program enhancement, the applicant should include a description of the existing program and details on how funding will support program enhancements.
  • Identify a specific referral system for how youth will be identified and referred to the program for services.

Funded sites should include strategies that support youth with in-home or community-based services that address the risk factors and support protective factors related to violence prevention.

Goals, Objectives, Deliverables, and Timeline can be found starting at https://ojjdp.ojp.gov/funding/fy2022/O-OJJDP-2022-171400#page=6.

To advance Executive Order 13929 Safe Policing for Safe Communities, the Attorney General determined that all state, local, and university or college law enforcement agencies must be certified by an approved independent credentialing body or have started the certification process, to be eligible for FY 2022 DOJ discretionary grant funding. To become certified, the law enforcement agency must meet two mandatory conditions: (1) the agency’s use-of-force policies adhere to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and (2) the agency’s use-of-force policies prohibit chokeholds except in situations where use of deadly force is allowed by law. The certification requirement also applies to law enforcement agencies receiving DOJ discretionary grant funding through a subaward. For detailed information on this certification requirement, please visit https://cops.usdoj.gov/SafePolicingEO to access the Standards for Certification on Safe Policing for Safe Communities, the Implementation Fact Sheet, and the List of Designated Independent Credentialing Bodies.

All recipients and subrecipients (including any for-profit organization) must forgo any profit or management fee.

OJJDP will consider applications under which two or more entities would carry out the federal award; however, only one entity may be the applicant. Any others must be proposed as subrecipients (subgrantees). For additional information on subawards, see the OJP Grant Application Resource Guide.

OJJDP may elect to fund applications submitted under this FY 2021 solicitation in future fiscal years, dependent on, among other considerations, the merit of the applications and on the availability of appropriations.
