Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $50,000)

The Disproportionate Minority Contact Community and Strategic Planning Project assists states with implementing state and/or local governing boards and to conduct an assessment of the local jurisdiction(s) juvenile justice system to determine the extent of DMC and possible contributing factors to reduce, without establishing or requiring numerical standards or quotas, the disproportionate number of minority juveniles who come into contact with the juvenile justice system in based on the Community and Strategic Planning Project curriculum.

Grant funds will be used to conduct a qualitative assessment in local targeted jurisdictions that will focus on the arrest and referral to juvenile court contact points, collaborate with local law enforcement agencies to identify possible explanations as to why minority youth have a significantly higher arrest rate, and assist designated evaluators with the process evaluation.
