Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and IHEs in multiple states and territories for programs that serve at-risk youth and youth in the justice system. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Eligible applicants are those located in Connecticut, Nebraska, New Mexico, Texas, Wyoming, American Samoa, and the Virgin Islands.

OJJDP strongly encourages applicants to consider evidence-based and promising programs that support the nonparticipating state in carrying out activities described in the core requirements of the Title II, Part B, Formula Grants program. Some examples include:

  • Programs, staff support, or other activities to enhance or maintain a state’s/jurisdiction’s ability to adequately monitor jails, lockups, secure detention facilities, and secure correctional facilities for carrying out activities designed to support compliance with the core requirements of the Title II, Part B, Formula Grants program (34 U.S.C. § 11133(a)(11), (12), and (13) [DSO, separation, and jail removal]).
  • Programs or other initiatives that ensure that juveniles will not be detained or confined in any institutions where they may come into contact with adult inmates (34 U.S.C. § 11133(a)(12) [separation]).
  • Programs or other initiatives to eliminate or prevent the detention or confinement of juveniles in adult jails and lockups (34 U.S.C. § 11133(a) (13) [jail removal]).
  • Intensive supervision in the juvenile’s home as a placement alternative and the use of home detention, including electronic monitoring, when safe and appropriate (34 U.S.C. § 11133(a)(11) [DSO]).
  • Emergency foster care, shelter care, group care, and independent living arrangements (34 U.S.C. § 11133(a)(11) [DSO]).
  • Crisis intervention services, short-term residential crisis intervention programs, and nonsecure holdovers that can be used for conflict mediation, emergency holding, and the provision of emergency attention for juveniles with physical or emotional problems (34 U.S.C. § 11133 (a)(11), (12), and (13) [DSO, separation, and jail removal]).
  • Programs or other initiatives to examine issues or improve policies, procedures, and services specifically devoted to identifying and reducing racial and ethnic disparities among youth who come into contact with the juvenile justice system (e.g., examining problems affecting decisions from arrest to disposition and detention to corrections) (34 U.S.C. § 11133(a)(15) [RED]).
