Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $50,000)
The Title V Community Prevention Grants Program intends to reduce risks and enhance protective factors to prevent at-risk youth from entering the juvenile justice systems and to intervene with first-time and non-serious offenders to keep them out of the juvenile justice system.
The State of Oklahoma's Title V funds are administered by the Oklahoma Office of Juvenile Affairs. The State utilizes these funds to address the prevention needs of local communities, as identified through statistical data and demonstrated service gaps. The State Advisory Group awards Title V grants to communities that implement self-sustaining prevention programs that provide evidenced-based services to at-risk youth and strengthen collaborative efforts between local governments and community partners. Data to measure progress towards these goals is gathered via quarterly progress reports required of grantees, the Statewide juvenile online tracking system and annual reporting data gathered for submission into the federal DCTAT reporting tool.
