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).

Project Success provides early intervention for identified truants who struggle academically, need social services, and are at risk of dropping out. Helping students achieve school success enables them to graduate from high school, be employable when entering the workforce, and ultimately become contributing members of society. Target population for this proposal is 4,924 students and their families from 16 public elementary schools in Decatur, IL. Project goals are to prevent delinquency through increased student achievement, reduced truancy, and increased parent involvement.
