CCDO FY 09 Weed and Seed Communities Competitive Program

The Weed and Seed strategy aims to prevent, control, and reduce violent crime, criminal drug-related activity, and gang activity.

The Weed and Seed initiative is a community-based, comprehensive multi-agency approach to law enforcement, crime prevention, and neighborhood restoration.


It is designed for neighborhood with persistent high levels of serious crime and corresponding social problems.

A Weed and Seed Community (WSC) must be developed in partnership with a variety of key local organizations and the local United States Attorney’s Office (USAO) to reduce crime and improve the quality of life for residents in a community primarily through the redeployment of existing public and private resources into the community.

A WSC also helps to address related social problems that without proper intervention often lead to violent crime, drug abuse, and gang activity.
