The Gang Injunction Curfew Settlement Agreement (GICSA) was executed and approved by the federal court in March 2017. The GICSA obligated the City, through the EWDD, to provide a variety of work-readiness and workforce development services over four years (2017-2021; extended and still active in 2024) to help prepare members of the impacted plaintiff class to enter the workforce. The number of potentially qualifying participants at the time of the Settlement was approximately 6,000. The City was required to expend a minimum of $1.125 million to a maximum of $7.5 million each year for four years ($30 million) to provide jobs, education, and tattoo removal services. The 6,000 plaintiff class members impacted by the GICSA represented twenty-six gang injunction areas in the City of Los Angeles.
