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 New Mexico Children Youth and Families Department will use Title V funds to fund one, local prevention, evidence-based program, selected from the Model Programs Guide that is culturally and linguistically appropriate and gender responsive for at-risk youth. Funds will be used for direct program services. The subgrantee will be required to collect and provide data on selected outcome and output performance measures on a quarterly basis. (NCA/NCF)
