Georgia Gang Activity Prosecution Grant

The State of Georgia set aside funds from the Fiscal Year 2024 state budget for a competitive grant to facilitate gang activity prosecutions in the state.  The FY24 Georgia Gang Activity Prosecution (GAP) Grant will be open for applications between September 27 – October 18, 2023 with award decisions announced on November 9, 2023. Eligible applicants for the GAP grant are the State of Georgia law enforcement agencies, prosecuting attorneys, or nonprofits primarily focused on gang prosecutions (State Agency, Judicial District/Circuit, County Sheriff, and Police Departments).

Successful applicants must show a commitment to (and ideally a track record of) successful prosecutions of gang activity. Favorable consideration will be given to counties with both prosecutors and law enforcement applying in tandem or in support of one another, as they are more likely to result in successful prosecutions. State agencies and nonprofits must articulate how their work will result in prosecutions.

Cost-share or match is not currently required for the FY 2024 Georgia Gang Activity Prosecution Grant. The period of performance will be from November 9, 2023 to May 15, 2024.
