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.

Maine Department of Corrections will give priority to applicants that demonstrate the ability to develop data-driven prevention plans and who will employ the Collaborative Problem Solving Initiative. With an estimated number of 4 awarded subgrantees, Title V 2011 awards will fund coordinated prevention efforts between schools, the Department of Corrections, parents, law enforcement, Shared Youth Vision Council statewide District Councils, and child serving agencies both public and private. The State of Maine has model prevention programs in most schools. The 4 awarded subgrantees will be expected to improve the well-being of youth and increase educational attainment and achievement levels of all children residing in the State of Maine. NCA/NCF
