Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention


Overview

The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2002, as amended, provides for the federal funding of local delinquency prevention programs.  In accordance with the Act, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), a branch of the federal Department of Justice, provides funds to states for delinquency prevention research, planning, programming and evaluation.  In Florida, the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) is the designated planning agency for delinquency prevention.


Funding Opportunities

Title II

The Title II Formula Grants Program is funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) which provides grant dollars to states and territories that support state and local delinquency prevention and intervention efforts and juvenile justice system improvements. Funds are administered through sub-grants to units of local government, local private agencies, community and faith-based organizations, and Indian tribes for delinquency prevention and intervention service to youth and families.   

Title V

The Title V Block Grant program is funded by OJJDP.  Funds are used to support collaborative, community-based delinquency prevention efforts designed to keep at-risk youth and first-time non-serious offenders from entering the juvenile justice system.  Funds are administered through sub-grants to units of local government.
