In March 2009 the Home Office committed £5 million to Phase II of the Tackling Knives and Serious Youth Violence Action Programme (TKAP) for 2009-10, to address serious youth violence within the 13-24 age range. Further funding of £2 million has been made available since then. No announcement has been made on plans for 2010-11.

The Tackling Gangs Action Programme (TGAP) was a six-month intensive programme of work launched in September 2007, which ended in March 2008. No funding was therefore provided to TGAP during the periods stipulated in the question.
