    To disseminate information and provide training and technical 
assistance on promising approaches to prevent and reduce incidents of 
hate crimes and hate-related behavior committed by youth.


    Hate crime is a serious problem in the United States, not only 
because of the number of individual victims but also because of the 
devastating impact hate violence has on families, communities, and 
institutions. Over the past few years, the Nation has witnessed an 
alarming number of violent hate crimes motivated by the perpetrators' 
bias toward their victims' perceived racial or

[[Page 39194]]

ethnic identity, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, gender, or 
    Since the enactment of the 1990 Hate Crime Statistics Act (HCSA), 
the Federal Government has worked to establish national statistics on 
hate crimes. In response to the 1990 law, the Attorney General directed 
the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to add hate crime as a 
category in the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. Although hate 
crime reporting by law enforcement agencies is voluntary under Federal 
law, the Justice Department has provided extensive training to State 
and local law enforcement agencies, resulting in increased reporting 
and improved programs for responding to hate crimes.
    The 1990 HCSA defined hate crimes as ``crimes that manifest 
evidence of prejudice based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or 
ethnicity.'' The Violent Crime and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 amended 
the HCSA to include crimes motivated by bias against persons with 
disabilities in the definition of hate crimes.
    Analysts in the field have noted that reporting under the HCSA has 
increased public awareness of, and improved local law enforcement's 
response to, hate crime violence; however, the reporting records remain 
incomplete. Because hate crime reporting by law enforcement agencies is 
voluntary under Federal law, experts believe the data do not completely 
describe the number and nature of hate crimes that occur nationally. In 
spite of these irregularities, the Hate Crime Statistics data for 1998 
indicated that 9,235 hate crimes were reported in that year.
    To increase hate crime awareness and support hate crime prevention 
efforts, the 1992 reauthorization of the Juvenile Justice and 
Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, as amended (Pub. L. 93-415, 42 
U.S.C. 5601 et seq.), authorized the Office of Juvenile Justice and 
Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) to fund research, training, and program 
efforts in support of hate crime awareness, education, and prevention. 
Congress directed OJJDP to establish and/or support model educational 
programs designed to prevent or reduce incidents of hate crimes by 
juveniles, including (1) programs that address prejudicial attitudes of 
juveniles, develop awareness of the effect of hate crime on the victim, 
and educate the offender about the importance of tolerance in our 
society and (2) sentencing programs for juveniles who commit hate 
crimes (42 U.S.C. 5665 (a)(9)).
    In 1994, the Safe and Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act was 
reauthorized as part of the Improving America's Schools Act (Pub. L. 
103-382). One of the most significant changes was the authorization of 
school violence prevention activities. The focus on school safety was 
based on a recognition that schools needed to expand the types of 
prevention and early intervention activities they were developing to 
ensure safe, healthy, disciplined, and drug-free students. In response 
to this broadened program authority, Congress authorized the U.S. 
Department of Education (ED) to develop education and training 
programs, curriculums, instructional materials, and professional 
training to prevent and reduce the incidence of crimes and conflicts 
motivated by hate in localities most directly affected by hate crimes 
(20 U.S.C. 7131).
    In general, hate crimes are ``message'' crimes intended to provoke 
fear, marginalize members of society, and disrupt the social order. In 
recent years, these crimes have incited fear and intimidation in many 
communities throughout the Nation. No community is immune. Hate crimes 
have been reported in all regions of the country. These crimes have a 
wrenching impact on their victims, who are often terrorized and 
tormented. They also have a devastating impact on all members of groups 
that are the target of hate crime and a corrosive impact on community 
and civil rights.
    Although existing hate crime data do not present a complete 
picture, they are useful in providing important information about the 
extent of hate crime, its victims, and its perpetrators. Examination of 
such data enables policymakers and professionals to identify the groups 
that are most likely to be victimized or become perpetrators and 
provide support and guidance for programs, resources, and services.
    While schools report that they have few, if any, hate crimes, 
educators agree that on a daily basis they deal with various forms of 
unacceptable bias-/hate-motivated and related behaviors that disrupt 
the learning environment. For the purpose of this program announcement, 
hate-related behaviors are defined to include (but are not limited to) 
the following: harassment, intimidation, bullying, taunting, graffiti, 
name calling, and fighting, when the victim of any of these behaviors 
is intentionally selected because of his or her race, color, religion, 
national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation, and/or 
physical appearance.
    Until recently, scant information has been available on juvenile 
involvement as either perpetrators or victims of hate crime. However, 
current national, State, and local information sources document an 
increasing involvement of juveniles in hate crimes or hate-related 

     According to hate crime data in Massachusetts for the 
years 1996 and 1997, nearly 63 percent of perpetrators were under 
the age of 21 (Department of Public Safety, 1998).
     A 1990 study of New York City police data showed that 
the median age for bias offenders was 18 and that 56 percent were 
under the age of 21 (Southern Poverty Law Center, 1995).

    Additional studies (cited below) have examined the incidence of 
hate crimes and the role of juveniles as either the victims or 
perpetrators of such crimes. Student surveys also support the view that 
hate crime prevention efforts need to be focused on youth.
    In a sample of 1,865 high school students attending 10th, 11th, and 
12th grades in public, parochial, and private schools across the 
country, more than half of the students interviewed claimed that they 
had witnessed racial confrontations either ``very often'' or ``once in 
a while.'' One in four students said that they were prepared to 
intervene in, or even condemn, a confrontation based on racial hatred. 
However, almost half of the students interviewed either admitted that 
they would join in an attack or agreed that the group under attack was 
``getting what it deserved'' (Harris, 1990).
    A study of 1,570 elementary, middle, and secondary schools in Los 
Angeles County also supports the view that hatred among youth is a 
critical problem. Thirty-seven percent of these schools reported 
incidents of hate-motivated violence during a school year. Students in 
middle and high schools were particularly likely to have experienced 
hate violence, with a response rate of 47 percent and 42 percent, 
respectively. Thirty-four percent of the elementary schools also 
reported hate incidents (Los Angeles Commission on Human Relations, 
    A poll conducted by Penn, Schoen & Berland Associates (1999) 
revealed that more than 90 percent of young people surveyed thought 
that hate crimes were a serious problem. Eighty-nine percent of the 
youth believed that the problem of hate crime affects all areas of the 
country, and 33 percent indicated that the problem of hate crime has 
become more severe.
    Although most hate crimes are perpetrated by individuals acting on 
their own (Levin and McDevitt, 1993), there is a long history of 
organized hatred in the United States. Hate groups contribute to 
community unrest and the escalation of community violence. 
Developmentally, adolescents may also

[[Page 39195]]

be more susceptible to hate ideology and propaganda. Some hate 
propaganda is particularly emotionally charged and can resonate with 
angry, alienated, and isolated teens who seek someone to blame for 
their unhappiness (Stanton, 1992). The individual juvenile who commits 
hate crimes, whether or not he or she is affiliated with an organized 
hate group, continues to pose a major challenge to youth-serving 
professionals. Another significant challenge is to conceptualize, 
fashion, and implement interventions that will modify a juvenile hate 
crime offender's prejudice, belief system, and violent behavior. These 
challenges require the collaboration of many disciplines to address the 
problem comprehensively.
    In 1997, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR) and the 
Leadership Conference Education Fund published a report entitled Cause 
for Concern: Hate Crimes in America, which noted an increasing trend in 
hate crime violence and the use of the Internet to spread messages of 
hate. This report also indicated that a large number of hate crime 
``perpetrators are youthful thrill-seekers, rather than hardcore 
haters,'' suggesting that hate crime prevention and education programs 
could be effective in reducing hate crime violence committed by 
    In the same year, the Anti-Defamation League's publication High 
Tech Hate: Extremist Use of the Internet discussed the impact of the 
Internet on individuals and groups of all ages, especially students 
from elementary to college levels. The growth of hate crimes through 
this medium challenges all persons working with youth to develop 
programs that will provide critical thinking skills and media literacy 
to teach youth to resist hate propaganda messages and affiliations that 
may be found on the Internet.
    OJJDP and the Department of Education's Safe and Drug-Free Schools 
(SDFS) Program have recognized the need to provide assistance to help 
prevent the commission of hate crimes by juveniles. Since 1997, this 
assistance has taken the form of joint funding to support training 
programs for policymakers working with communities and youth and 
technical assistance to several sites implementing innovative hate 
crime prevention initiatives.
    In response to the growing demand by communities, law enforcement, 
and schools for additional hate crime and hate-related behavior 
information, training, and technical assistance, OJJDP and SDFS are 
pleased to announce a new competitive program: Hate Crime Prevention: A 
Comprehensive Approach. This jointly funded information and training 
and technical assistance program is designed to address the problem of 
juvenile hate crime and identify effective components of hate crime 
prevention programs. The program will focus on (1) disseminating 
information about promising practices and available resources; (2) 
providing training and technical assistance on effective school-based 
hate-related behavior prevention programs; and (3) promoting national 
and local level collaboration among youth and professionals from 
different disciplines who work with young people (e.g., educators, law 
enforcement officers, judges, representatives of community agencies and 
organizations, clergy) to support institutional change to prevent and 
reduce the incidence of hate crime.


    The goals of this project are twofold:
     To enhance awareness of promising approaches to reduce and 
prevent incidents of hate crimes committed by youth.
     To assist communities, law enforcement, and schools in 
providing effective hate crime prevention programs and activities that 
prevent and reduce incidents of hate crime and promote greater 
tolerance among youth.


    To accomplish these goals, the Hate Crime Prevention initiative 
     Improve the knowledge of hate crimes and related issues 
among law enforcement, youth-serving professionals, and educators.
     Provide training and technical assistance to local youth-
serving agencies, schools, and law enforcement in implementing 
promising hate crime and hate-related behavior prevention activities 
and programs.
     Disseminate information about emerging hate crime and 
hate-related behavior prevention issues, programs, and strategies.
     Promote collaboration among multidisciplinary 
organizations and agencies to prevent, reduce, and respond to hate 
crimes and hate-related behavior.
     Develop resource materials, publications, and guides to 
inform and assist practitioners, policymakers, and communities to 
address the problem of hate crimes and hate-related behavior.

Target Population

    The major clients to be served with the implementation of the Hate 
Crime Prevention: A Comprehensive Approach initiative include youth and 
professionals working in:

     Juvenile justice, including law enforcement, 
prosecutors, and the judiciary.
     Youth-serving organizations representing both 
education-related and justice-related audiences.
     Criminal justice (as in the juvenile justice category, 
the criminal justice audience includes law enforcement, prosecutors, 
and the judiciary).
     Community agencies and organizations.

Program Strategy

    OJJDP will competitively select a single organization to implement 
the hate crime prevention training and technical assistance program, 
for an initial 12-month budget period, within a 3-year project period. 
Partnerships are encouraged, and when they are utilized, a single 
agency or organization must be identified as having lead responsibility 
for the project.
    Applicants must clearly demonstrate experience in the delivery and 
management of national multifaceted training and technical assistance 
programs, expertise on the topic of hate crimes, and an understanding 
of the challenges that exist in the field of hate crime prevention 
programming. Applicants are encouraged to be creative in their approach 
to designing and delivering technical assistance and training, 
reflecting an understanding of the resources and constraints of the 
various disciplines involved in implementing a juvenile hate crime 
prevention and reduction program.
    Applications must include detailed plans for implementing training 
and technical assistance, including measurable goals and objectives. 
Applicants should indicate how they will incorporate electronic mediums 
for providing training and technical assistance via teleconferencing 
and other Internet based modalities. Applicants must also provide 
timelines and a description of how the program will provide technical 
assistance and training, on the specific hate crime and hate-related 
behavior prevention program areas listed below, across diverse 
disciplines and jurisdictions.
    Hate crime prevention topics to be addressed through training and 
technical assistance include the following:

     Youth hate crime and hate-related behavior prevention 
     Hate crime definitions.
     Hate crime and hate-related behavior identification and 
the scope of the problem.
     Hate crime and hate-related behavior impact and its 
relationship to prevention programs.
     Tools and materials designed to reduce prejudice and 
prevent hate crime and hate-related behavior in communities.

[[Page 39196]]

     The legislative and legal issues pertaining to Federal 
criminal statutes, the Hate Crime Statistics Act, and State hate 
crime legislation, including model hate crime legislation.
     Diversion and sentencing innovations for juvenile 
     Effective law enforcement, school, and community hate 
crime collaborations.
     Strategies for mobilizing communities and schools to 
prevent hate crimes and hate-related behavior.

    Applicants' training and technical assistance design must reflect 
recent research on effective hate crime and hate-related behavior 
prevention programming; explain how the delivery and development of 
materials will occur, with consideration given to the diverse needs of 
the various disciplines involved in implementing hate crime and hate-
related behavior prevention efforts; and provide a plan for producing 
program deliverables.


    In addition to developing a training and technical assistance 
strategy based on the areas described above, the selected applicant 
will provide the following deliverables over the 36-month project 

     Develop a program guide outlining promising, age-
appropriate hate crime and hate-related behavior prevention 
activities that can be used in a variety of settings and providing 
guidance to those working with elementary school age children. This 
guide would also discuss policies that should be developed to 
support hate crime and hate-related behavior prevention and provide 
suggestions on how to work with children who engage in this 
     Develop a manual for parents, school personnel, and 
community members working with youth to provide guidance for helping 
school-age youth recognize and make critical choices regarding 
messages of racism, prejudice, bigotry, and other hateful material 
on the Internet.
     Design and deliver two training of trainers (TOT) 
courses per year, using existing OJJDP and Department of Education 
materials for middle school students to develop a cadre of trainers 
capable of training others to develop and implement effective and 
innovative hate crime prevention programs and activities in schools 
and communities.
     Organize and conduct one multidisciplinary regional 
training per year for practitioners with the goal of presenting 
current knowledge and emerging practices in the area of hate crime 
and hate-related behavior prevention and response. This training 
must be held in a specific region of the country having a high 
incidence of reported hate crime activity and one or more active 
public/private hate crime prevention collaborations or programs.
     Develop a strategy using existing OJJDP and Department 
of Education materials to recruit, train, and include senior high 
and middle school students as peer leaders in supporting hate crime 
and hate-related behavior prevention activities and develop program 
guides to work with middle school and senior high school students.
     Develop a plan and deliver one national/State hate 
crime and hate-related behavior prevention training per year 
targeted to policymakers in the fields of juvenile justice, criminal 
justice, and education and in youth-serving organizations.
     Develop a plan and provide onsite technical assistance 
to three new sites per year. Selection criteria for these sites 
should include evidence of multidisciplinary hate crime community 
collaboration and an action plan documenting need for assistance to 
implement a hate crime and hate-related behavior prevention effort.
     Design and implement a plan to promote hate crime 
prevention and project activities, including training and technical 
assistance activities, to a national audience.
     Design and implement appropriate evaluation measures to 
assess the training and technical assistance services provided.
     Prepare a report summarizing participant training and 
technical assistance evaluations to be used for the purpose of 
improving future training and technical assistance delivery and 
providing insight into existing hate crime and hate-related behavior 
prevention needs.
     Develop and maintain a hate crime and hate-related 
behavior prevention Web site to disseminate information and update 
the field about hate crime prevention programs, information, events, 
resources, training and technical assistance services, and 
strategies for effective alternatives to incarceration for juvenile 
hate crime offenders.
     Disseminate information through the Web site and other 
     Develop three technical assistance bulletins/guides 
(one of which will be directed to Federal, State, and local law 
enforcement and policymakers, one to teachers and parents, and the 
other one to youth) to provide critical information on hate crime 
and six technical assistance briefs (two per year) based on case 
studies of specific sites that have received training and technical 
assistance and are implementing effective or promising hate crime 
prevention efforts.
     Create and foster active partnerships with other 
national public/private organizations involved in promoting 
tolerance and hate crime prevention for the purpose of improving 
services, providing outreach, avoiding duplication of efforts, and 
promoting linkages to facilitate information exchange.
     Organize an advisory group of professionals 
representative of the broad range of constituencies involved in hate 
crime and hate-related behavior prevention issues to provide 
guidance on project activities during the grant period. The advisory 
group must include educators, parents, and juvenile justice and 
criminal justice professionals, among others.
     Convene two advisory group meetings each project year.

    Applicants should be realistic in setting the cost of deliverables 
and in outlining the implementation schedule. Applicants are also 
encouraged to be innovative in their approach as OJJDP and ED will 
consider nontraditional training and technical assistance delivery 
approaches so long as the goals and objectives of the program are met.
