Grants to Virginia nonprofit organizations and businesses for projects to improve public safety in eligible communities. Funding is intended for the development of practices and programming designed for youth and young adults. The goal of the program is to implement or enhance evidence-based strategies and/or projects that will result in the reduction of gun violence within the City of Newport News.

The primary purpose is to support the implementation of strategies that will result in reduced gun violence in local communities. This will be done by using evidence-based programming or promising practices that have been proven effective in reducing gun violence. The specific focus on interrupting cycles of violence among those individuals at highest risk for perpetrating gun violence or being a victim of gun violence. Grant funds will allow community-based organizations to implement strategies that will result in the reduction of gun violence in the City of Newport News, through new projects or enhancement of existing projects. Organizations are encouraged to collaborate to enhance their reach, effectiveness, and sustainability.

All projects should be community-based with a focus on two key elements: prevention and intervention. These are defined as:

  • Prevention - Solutions that keep youth and young adults from entering or reentering the cycle of violence. Prevention involves efforts to prevent escalation by assisting individuals at an increased risk of violence or exhibiting early signs (or repeated signs) of violent behavior.
  • Intervention - Projects and policies that assist youth and young adults, as well as their families that have been impacted by violence and will reduce their risk levels of repeat exposure or recidivism.

Projects should support one of the following goals and objectives:

  • Increased communication, coordination, and collaboration amongst city departments, community-based organizations, businesses, and other key stakeholders.
  • Reduction in the incidents of gun violence amongst youth and young adults between the ages of 13 and 24 through the implementation of innovative and technology-based prevention, intervention, enforcement, and re-entry strategies.
  • Enhance and/or expand access to mental health services, education, and interventions that prevent and reduce violence.
  • Decrease in the barriers (i.e., education, employment, and housing) to the successful reintegration of youth and young adults returning to the community from a secure juvenile detention facility.
  • Increase in community education, awareness, and engagement around gun violence reduction and its impact on individuals, families, neighborhoods, and broader communities.
