Required Services and ProgrammingThe DHS Office of Firearm Violence Prevention (OFVP) is investing in the highest-risk Chicago communities to provide a trio of violence prevention services intended to mitigate, reduce, and prevent violent behavior, in particular firearm violence. The OFVP is seeking applications from organizations and partnerships of organizations with the ability to connect with those individuals at highest risk of harming someone or being harmed by firearm violence. Funded organizations will provide a trio of programs that include street outreach, case management, and victim services.
Partnership Applications: IDHS strongly encourages application partnerships if any single organization is unable to provide all three violence prevention services as described below. Organizations serving the same community area are encouraged to partner to provide each of the required services and apply for funding under one primary lead applicant organization. The primary applicant organization (grantee) must provide at least one of the required Violence Prevention service components and subgrant with one or more eligible organizations to provide the remaining service components. Sub-recipient entities will be subject to the same GATA and grant requirements as the primary applicant organization (grantee). More information about subgrantee partnership applications is found below in Section D.3.
Services and programming will be tailored based on community, individual, youth and family needs and will include but not be limited to:
