Funding for Gang Prevention Grant Program (Shannon Grants)

comparisons adjusted for inflation (CPI)

Shannon Grants help fund anti-gang and youth violence prevention efforts undertaken by law enforcement, community-based organizations, and government agencies in communities throughout the Commonwealth.

Administered by the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS), this state grant program offers communities with a demonstrated gang and youth violence problem resources to implement a multi-disciplinary, anti-gang strategy. Shannon Grants support efforts by law enforcement to steer children away from gangs and prevent youth violence, thereby reducing the likelihood that these children will become involved with law enforcement in less positive ways. Funded communities are required to adopt the Comprehensive Gang Model (CGM), an approach developed by researchers in the early 1990s. The CGM integrates the following five elements: social intervention, opportunity provision, suppression, community mobilization, and organizational change.

Examples of approved program elements include increased community policing, crime-mapping and investigation; collaborative home-visits (with clergy, school staff, or probation officers) for at-risk-youth; youth mentoring and street outreach; job placement and offender re-entry support services. In the most recent available report, from 2015, 15 sites encompassing 27 communities received Shannon Grant awards.
