The City of Tacoma has been awarded $133,000 in grant funding from the Washington State Partnership Council on Juvenile Justice for its gang reduction program from Nov. 1, 2013 to June 30, 2015.

“With these much needed dollars, we can continue our work to foster a comprehensive and community-inclusive anti-gang approach, build capacity within the community for gang prevention and intervention, and develop programs, strategies, and policies to reduce youth gang involvement,” said Assistant City Manager Tansy Hayward, who also oversees the City’s Neighborhood and Community Services Department.

The City will establish contracts with community organizations to implement a number of strategies in the Tacoma Gang Reduction Project Implementation Plan, including supportive services, community capacity building and graffiti removal.
