Harrisonburg and Rockingham County want to create a gang task force to help rid the city of gang activity. They expected to have to use local funding for the project.
But $175,000 of federal funding that is going to the rush drug task force will be used for the new gang task force as well.
The county has already approved the plan, and the city is expected to do the same at Tuesday night's city council meeting.
