Joyce Craig
Former Mayor | Manchester, NH

ARP: Manchester, NH Invests in Public Safety & Violence Prevention

Idea Category: Public Safety | Funding Source: American Rescue Plan

Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig will put American Rescue Plan Act funding towards a new gun violence prevention strategy. The city will use a data-driven approach to analyze where gun violence occurs in the city and direct resources towards hot-spot neighborhoods that include areas of high levels of dangerous activity and unrest. ARPA funding will help recruit support from community health workers, youth outreach programs, and an increased police presence. “It's evidence-based, and the research that we’ve done shows it’s critical to do that layered approach and work with the community in doing so,” Craig said. Additionally, the Department of Public Works will focus on improving green spaces. Mayor Craig is committed to a joint community effort, saying “we can’t tackle this on our own.”
