Funding Opportunity: FY 2023 Office of Justice Programs Community Based Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative (CVIPI)

The Bureau of Justice Assistance, in coordination with OVC and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), seeks to enhance efforts to prevent and reduce violent crime in communities by supporting comprehensive, evidence-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.

BJA is administering CVIPI, working in partnership with OVC and OJJDP. 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 those who are victims of it.
