Matrix of Community-Based Initiatives: Program Summary. Updated.
The Matrix of Community-Based Initiatives indicates in graph format the collocations of major public and private comprehensive community-based violence prevention and economic development initiatives that could assist in delinquency prevention efforts across the country. These initiatives, which are guided by varying goals, differ in the scope of the geographic area they target, but have in common the fact that each has an interdisciplinary local planning board focusing on improving the lives of at-risk children and families. The first section of the report provides a brief narrative description of each major federal or private initiative, and includes the name of a contact person. Following the narratives is the Matrix. Along its vertical axis, the states are listed alphabetically, with each followed by the jurisdictions within the state where the initiatives are located. Along the horizontal axis, the initiatives are identified and organized by federal department and foundation. Program descriptions are from the following agencies and sectors: (1) U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (7 programs); (2) U.S. Department of Justice (10 programs); (3) U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (9 programs); (4) U.S. Department of Education (1 program); (5) U.S. Department of Labor (5 programs); (6) Corporation for National Service (5 programs); (7) U.S. Department of the Interior (1 program); (8) public and private organizations (12 programs).
