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.

The Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative (JDAI) of the Annie E. Casey Foundation has shown to be one of the most effective juvenile justice reform efforts of our lifetime. Through a new cooperative agreement, OJJDP has endorsed and supported the expansion of JDAI. One part of this cooperative agreement is a grant to the National Partnership for Juvenile Services (NPJS) to provide additional logistics for the delivery of quality JDAI training programs for new and existing JDAI sites, which are essential elements of any jurisdiction's success. Logistics include training preparation, delivery, and follow-up. Cost analysis, trainer(s) and site coordinator feedback and training participant evaluations will be used to measure the success of project goals. NCA/NCF
