CalGRIP Grant Programs
Project Description and Background
The California Gang Reduction, Intervention and Prevention (CalGRIP) Initiative and the Governor’s Office of Gang and Youth Violence Policy (OGYVP) support three separate grant programs, administered through three state offices: 1) the California Emergency Management Agency (formerly the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services), 2) the Labor and Workforce Development Agency (through the Employment Development Department) and 3) the Corrections Standards Authority.
CalGRIP, California Emergency Management Agency (CalEMA)
As part of the CalGRIP initiative, and as required by statute, CalEMA and OGYVP have distributed four rounds of CalGRIP grants to local communities to support prevention, intervention or suppression strategies to reduce gang and youth violence. Cal EMA CalGRIP funds support implemenation of the Safe Community Partnership (Ceasefire strategy) as well as a number of proven and promising evidence-based programs.
CalGRIP, Labor and Workforce Development Agency
Also part of the CalGRIP Initiative, the Labor and Workforce Development Agency (through the Employment Development Department) and OGYVP have distributed four rounds of CalGRIP grants to local organizations. Funding for these programs is drawn from the Governor's 15 percent Discretionary Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funds under the administrative authority of the Employment Development Department (EDD). Through this grant program, agencies provide job training and education programs targeting youth at risk of joining gangs or seeking to leave them.
CalGRIP, Corrections Standards Authority
In support of California’s efforts to reduce gang and youth violence among youth in the juvenile justice system, the Corrections Standards Authority (CSA), in consultation with OGYVP, awarded $1.1 mission in federal Juvenile Accountability Block Grants (JABG) to county probation departments to implement and or expand anger management and youth violence prevention training programs to youth in custodial settings and in the community.
