Crises and Opportunities for

Community Violence Intervention

+ John Maki

Executive Summary

This policy brief is intended for community and government leaders looking for strategies to sustain community violence intervention (CVI) programs, as they plan for the impending expiration of early-pandemic-era federal funding. Drawing lessons from the history of federal public-safety grantmaking, it argues that this situation not only presents challenges in assessing these programs and finding sustainable resources for the most promising ones, but also offers an opportunity to examine and improve the laws, policies, and practices that shape government grantmaking.
