OJJDP FY 2015 Second Chance Act Smart on Juvenile Justice: Community Supervision

OJJDP FY 2015 Second Chance Act Smart on Juvenile Justice: Community Supervision – As many as 100,000 youth younger than 18 years old are released from juvenile correctional facilities every year. These young people often return to their communities with complex needs, such as physical and behavioral health issues and barriers to education and employment. This grant program will provide planning grants to state and local government agencies and federally recognized Native American/Alaskan Native tribes to support their efforts to develop and finalize a comprehensive juvenile community supervision reform strategic plan that will implement evidence-based supervision strategies to reduce recidivism and improve outcomes for juveniles under community supervision . When grantees complete their strategic plan, OJJDP expects to invite them to submit applications through a competitive process for implementation grants of as much as $650,000 to implement their plans. Future funding decisions for implementation grants will be competitive and will consider the quality and comprehensiveness of the strategic plan and associated solicitation deliverables. Current Closing Date for Applications: June 15, 2015.
