GANG PREVENTION AND INTERVENTION TASK FORCE GRANT PROGRAM

The Gang Prevention and Intervention Task Force Grant Program was developed to coordinate strategic investments in partnership with community based service providers to increase support for high-risk youth and families to address and prevent gang and youth violence in our community. 

In the 2016 pilot year, 18 grantees provided over an estimated 117,000 service hours to 2,835 youth who were at risk for gang involvement or already gang involved. Direct service hours included school based support, workforce readiness/ job training, family-based support, life skills/ cognitive development , street outreach and community awareness/ engagement. Read more about the work of the 2016 grantees in the 2016 Program Evaluation Report
