Category 1: New Applicants.

Existing grantees funded under OJJDPуs National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention, Defending Childhood, and Community-Based Violence Prevention initiatives are eligible only under Category 2. Category 2: Existing Grantees. Eligible applicants are existing grantee sites of OJJDPуs National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention, Defending Childhood, and Community-Based Violence Prevention initiatives that did not receive funding under the FY 2015 Youth Violence Prevention Enhancement solicitation. (Refer to the matrix, Appendix B, page 52.) All Applicants: To be eligible for consideration for funding under this solicitation, applicants must provide letters of commitment/memoranda of understanding that the chief executive officer (e.g., mayor, county executive, tribal chair), chief of police, superintendent of schools within the locality, and directors of public health, housing, workforce development, economic development, and child welfare (or the equivalent positions) have signed. Letters of commitment/memoranda must indicate an understanding of the goals of the proposal, describe the roles and responsibilities of the signer and/or represented agency, and specify the fiscal and staffing resource commitments made to the collaboration. OJJDP welcomes applications that involve two or more entities that will carry out the funded federal award activities; however, one eligible entity must be the applicant and the other(s) must be proposed as subrecipient(s). The applicant must be the entity with primary responsibility for administering the funding and managing the entire project. Only one application per lead applicant will be considered; however, a subrecipient may be part of multiple proposals. OJJDP may elect to make awards for applications submitted under this solicitation in future fiscal years, dependent on, among other considerations, the merit of the applications and on the availability of appropriations.
