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 Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) administers Kentucky's Title V Community Prevention Grants award. The Commonwealth's Juvenile Justice and Advisory Board (JJAB) plans to support one project with FY 2011 funding. The JJAB is committed to maintain funding for existing Title V recipients for the duration of their eligible years of funding (3 years) as long as they remain in good standing and are displaying adequate outcomes. By doing this, the JJAB intends to allow for continuity of services to youth and the support for development of infrastructures that are more conducive to sustainability of a program. Although the JJAB supports projects that focus on a variety of delinquency prevention issues, these projects must address substance abuse prevention and mental health services. NCA/NCF
