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 North Dakota Department of Corrections of Juvenile Services is the designated State agency to receive Title V funds in the State of North Dakota. It is anticipated that with the FY 2011 funds the North Dakota Juvenile Justice State Advisory Group (SAG) will select one to two sub grantees to continue programs that were implemented last year. Particular emphasis will be given to those programs that are evidenced-based and/or have demonstrated performance. Due to the significant over-representation of Native American youth in the North Dakota juvenile justice system, priority for funding will also be placed on those programs that are designed to pilot, develop, or support culturally competent services for Native American youth, both on and off the reservation. Outcome measures relative to the services to be provided will be selected from the appropriate Title V program area and reported on by sub grantees on a quarterly basis. Performance measurement data will be reported to OJJDP annually. NCA/NCF
