Intensive Gang Intervention Services RFP for Forsyth, Guilford Counties

Gang-involved youth are responsible for a disproportionate share of crime in communities. Successfully tackling gang involvement and associated criminal activities should result in a substantial reduction of crime — including violent crime — in affected neighborhoods. To that end, many programs and strategies have been developed to prevent gang involvement, reduce the criminal activities of gang members, and help individuals disengage from gangs.

This RFP aims to impact juveniles adjudicated juveniles ages 10 and up. This includes juveniles who are over the age of 18 up to age 20 who may be accepted by intensive intervention services as appropriate for the proposed model. The juveniles under these guidelines targeted for this RFP are those that have been identified as being gang involved in Forsyth and Guilford counties. Juveniles who are involved in gangs and show significant criminalized behaviors require specialized programs, curricula or targeted interventions that impact their desire or need to be a gang member and helps them safely exit their gang membership and transition into becoming productive members of the community in which they live.

This RFP is targeted to Gang Intervention Programming in Forsyth and Guilford counties. The programs funded under this RFP will not be those in which the focus is gang prevention but, instead, intensive intervention models to serve an already identified gang population. A program may serve one or both counties and may identify specific areas within the county or counties they plan to focus. Priority will be given to fund a program(s) that collaborative work within both targeted counties.
