WASHINGTON, D.C. — In a major public safety announcement, Hyphen today announced the roster of community-based organizations in 16 jurisdictions that will participate in its training and technical assistance (TTA) program, a critical step in building out sustainable CVI infrastructure to stem the rise of gun violence now and over the long-term.
Hyphen anchors the White House Community Violence Intervention Collaborative, an initiative that seeks to bolster the programmatic, organizational, and administrative capacity of grassroots community violence intervention (CVI) organizations and increase their access to new federal funding streams to scale their efforts. These new funding streams include the American Rescue Plan and 26 existing programs across federal agencies. CVIC involves multi-sector stakeholders in 16 diverse jurisdictions across the country, with local and national partners to provide training and technical assistance (TTA) on CVI strategies and organizational development. The 16 jurisdictions include: Atlanta, GA; Austin, TX; Baltimore, MD; Baton Rouge, LA ; Chicago, IL; Detroit, MI; Los Angeles, CA; Memphis, TN; Miami-Dade, FL; Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN; Newark, NJ; Philadelphia, PA; Rapid City, SD; King County, WA; St. Louis, MO; and Washington, DC.
