Abstract: The guide is organized according to topical keywords within each of the Weed and Seed strategy elements: (1) Law Enforcement/Community Policing; (2) Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment; (3) Neighborhood Revitalization. The section on Law Enforcement/Community Policing outlines grant opportunities and other forms of federal assistance available under the topics of child protection, community crime prevention, community policing, drug enforcement assistance, emergency preparedness, environmental enforcement, gangs, gun crime/gun safety, public housing and crime prevention, reentry, school safety, victim assistance, violence against women/family violence, and volunteer and related services. For example, under the topic of community crime prevention, the Department of Justice awards grants to assist with criminal justice activities, the promotion of public safety, and the prevention of juvenile delinquency. A list of State contacts for this grant is offered. A number of grant opportunities are available under the broad topic of community policing, such as grants to help local law enforcement agencies hire and train community policing professionals and grants to help increase the amount of overtime funding available for community policing and homeland security efforts. Other grant opportunities described in this guide include the Social Services Block Grant to help in the provision of social services and the Older Americans Act Nutrition Programs which provide home-delivered meals and other services to elderly adults. The guide also includes a listing of all the Federal agencies included in the guide along with their Web sites. Keyword index
