"T. Out of this appropriation, $125,000 the first year and $125,000 the second year from the general fund is designated to Virginia Commonwealth University's School of Education for the Gang Prevention Project. The purpose of the project is to assist localities in developing comprehensive violence prevention plans. The funds shall be used to train community teams on violence prevention, conduct needs assessments and assist in program development, and may also be used to fund local community grants to private nonprofit organizations providing gang prevention programs to at-risk youth and families. The School of Education shall coordinate its training, technical assistance, community education efforts and awarding of grants and required grant monitoring activities with the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia."

(This amendment restores funding for the Gang Prevention Project. The introduced budget for 2000-02 moved funding for this program from Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Virginia to the Department of Criminal Justice Services and reduced funding.)
