Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $800,000)

This program was designed to establish a data analysis source to serve the critical information needs of the juvenile justice community and assist OJJDP in fulfilling its responsibility to disseminate vital statistical information to the field and inform juvenile justice policy and practice. The National Juvenile Justice Data Analysis Program (NJJDAP) will serve as a principal resource to provide quality data and information to juvenile justice practitioners. This solicitation is authorized by Sections 221223 of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDP Act), 42 U.S.C. §§ 5631-5633 and 42 U.S.C. §§ 3796ee et. seq..

Since 1990, the National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ) has worked with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) to advance the Office's roles as a data collector and disseminator of juvenile justice statistics. The National Juvenile Justice Data Analysis Project has significantly improved the landscape of juvenile justice statistical information available nationwide by creating a data dissemination infrastructure: tools that are indispensable resources for informed policy decision making. The project will continue to address OJJDP's information needs in a cost-efficient manner, taking advantage of existing databases to produce empirical information on a range of topics and disseminating this information to diverse audiences. To this end, they will continue to update/expand the Statistical Briefing Book and its Easy Access data analysis tools, conduct original research, produce publications, respond to information requests, and work with OJJDP to develop new data resources. NCJJ and its subcontractor, Westat, have extensive research experience in juvenile justice issues and dissemination of research and statistical information, and a history of successful collaboration with OJJDP. To gauge the results of this work one need only look at its products, which are for the most part open to public review. Data for performance measures will be reported to OJJDP in semiannual progress reports or as otherwise required by OJJDP. CA/NCF

OJJDP's Demonstration Programs Division Grants were established to provide grants, cooperative agreements, and other assistance to organizations. This program is authorized by the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011, Pub. L. 112-110.
