Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $500,000)

The OJJDP FY 09 Earmarks Programs further the Department's mission by providing grants, cooperative agreements, and other assistance authorized by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, as amended, to organizations identified in the Explanatory Statement Regarding H.R. 1105 (Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009), 155 Cong. Rec. H1653 (daily ed. Feb. 23, 2009) (statement by Rep. Obey, Chairman of the Committee on Appropriations of the House).

Klingberg Family Center educates and provides vocational/pre-vocational training for students in a specialized, clinically-supported learning environment. Funding in this grant will afford approximately 100 at-risk Klingberg residential and day school students each year with expanded and enhanced vocational and pre-vocational opportunities. Klingberg has found that vocational and pre-vocational training, when fully integrated with the education curriculum, engages students who struggle to learn using traditional academic methods.
