Community Violence Intervention Collaborative (CVIC)

Announced by President Biden on June 23, 2021, CVIC seeks to scale evidence-based community-led strategies to reduce gun violence and enhance public safety for children, families, and communities. With support from 14 prominent philanthropies, CVIC provides training, technical assistance, and peer learning to help community-based organizations scale their efforts and increase their impact. Through this collaborative, White House and administration officials bring together mayors, community experts, philanthropic leaders, and other key stakeholders for joint learning on lessons, best practices, and innovations. 


CVIC focuses on the following jurisdictions: Atlanta, GA; Austin, TX; Baltimore, MD; Baton Rouge, LA; Chicago, IL; Detroit, MI; King County, WA; Los Angeles, CA; Memphis, TN; Minneapolis & St. Paul, MN; Newark, NJ; Philadelphia, PA; Rapid City, SD; St. Louis, MO; and Washington, DC.

As CVIC's anchor, Hyphen engages philanthropy, supports the multi-sector learning network, and manages the training, technical assistance, and communications to scale and sustain the CVI movement and infrastructure for the long term.
