Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $125,000)

OJJDP's Demonstration Programs Division Grants were established to provide grants, cooperative agreements, and other assistance to organizations identified in the Conference Report to accompany the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117) -- H.R. Conf. Rep. No. 111-366.

Through the use of a tool Dr. Mark Lipsey has developed, this program will provide states with the knowledge necessary to provide a full continuum of effective prevention and intervention services designed to achieve better outcomes for juvenile offenders. In order to do this, a paper will be developed and a symposium will be held on this new approach to evidence based practice. The paper and symposium will serve to generate interest in an intensive training and technical assistance implementation phase that will be provided to three selected jurisdictions. The increased knowledge of symposium and training participants will be measured, as will intermediate outcomes such as the change in policies and practices in the three sites chosen for the training and implementation phases.
