Coordinated Juvenile Justice Assistance to States

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention issued its broad solicitation for training and technical services this week, a large contract meant to replace a number of smaller projects on singular issues including youth in custody, state advisory groups and racial disparities.

The new “Coordinated Assistance to States” project will provide $2 million in a one-year cooperative agreement to one organization, which will be responsible for training and technical assistance in six different areas:

  • Racial disparities reduction strategies
  • Compliance with the core requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJPDA)
  • Assisting state advisory groups (SAG)
  • State, local and tribal departments of juvenile justice
  • Justice information sharing
  • Emergency planning at juvenile residential facilities

Your support allows The Imprint to provide independent, nonpartisan daily news covering the issues faced by vulnerable children and families.
