The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention is seeking proposals to help communities develop and implement comprehensive and collaborative strategies that address the challenges that reentry and recidivism reduction pose.
OJJDP will provide grants to state government agencies to use over a two-year period.
Successful applicants must be able to develop and execute a strategy to:
- Implement an existing statewide plan to better align juvenile justice policy, practice, and resource allocation with what the research shows works to reduce recidivism and improve other outcomes for youth in contact with the juvenile justice system.
- Implement policy, practice, and resource allocation changes with fidelity to the research and high quality.
- Track recidivism rates and other youth outcomes to measure implementation progress, share this data with system leaders and policymakers, use data to hold providers and agencies accountable for results, and guide implementation improvements.
