This article summarizes the results from a Rapid Evidence Assessment (REA) to identify effective cross-sector, multi-agency urban youth firearms violence reduction strategies. Of the 129 studies identified through the systematic REA process, published from 1996–2013, 11 eligible studies met the inclusion criteria. Ten of these studies indicated sizable reductions in violence as measured by fatalities, gang-involved homicides, or shootings. Recommendations for violence reduction strategies and implications for future gun violence research are discussed.
