CCD JOINS WHITE HOUSE NATIONAL NETWORK OF COMMUNITY VIOLENCE INTERVENTION PROFESSIONALS

Community capacity Development becomes “Core-5” member of the White House Community violence intervention collaborative (CVIC). This is an initiative launched by the Biden-Harris Administration that convenes Mayors, grassroot community violence intervention (CVI) organizations, national funders and federal agencies to strengthen and enhance the capacity of community – based violence intervention organizations to serve as a complimentary strategy to policing in reducing violence and create safe communities.

Community Capacity Development with CVIC will engage 64 grassroots CVI organizations, across 16 jurisdictions to execute a comprehensive national training and technical assistance and support programs.
