Finn Institute to Partner with Schenectady and Utica on Group Violence Intervention

January 20, 2016 – The Institute will provide technical assistance to partners in Utica and in Schenectady to support their efforts to implement the Group Violence Intervention (GVI). The Institute will guide problem analysis designed to enhance local understanding of the nature and extent of group and gun violence. This problem analysis will support data driven decision making around the design and implementation of GVI in each city and the data can also provide the foundation upon which to support efforts to assess implementation and impacts. The Institute’s associate director and project director Sarah McLean said “We look forward to working closely with the GVI partners in Schenectady and Utica.”
