Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $600,554)

With preparation of the Narrative and other required grants documents — plus work that will continue to seek to address the 33 statutory elements of the Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDP Act), establishment and usage of an effective monitoring system; compliance data collection, submission, and monitoring; and development and implementation of the 3 Year Plan — the State of Connecticut intends to become a participating state again in the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Title II Formula Grant Program (“OJJDP Title II Grant Program”).

Prior to 2017, Connecticut was a long-standing participant in the OJJDP Title II Grant Program. Participation — with the resources received, technical assistance delivered, partnerships with other states, and provision of the latest research, evidence-based practices, and data analysis — contributed enormously to Connecticut’s endeavors to improve juvenile justice system outcomes. As a national leader in enacting and implementing data-driven juvenile justice policies and practices, Connecticut wishes to participate in OJJDP Title II Grant Program Grant Program again, to support its efforts to improve system outcomes further while partnering with other states pursuing similar goals for its youth.
