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 Illinois, Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS)/Division of Community Health and Prevention is the designated State agency to receive Title V funds in the State of Illinois. The State seeks these community prevention funds to continue to support policy, practice and programming improvements related to youth domestic battery. DHS anticipates awarding approximately 3 subcontracts that will fund crisis intervention, safety planning, family support, individualized services and other program and policy development efforts, with a focus on gender specific services. In addition, each site will also implement a best practice program called "Step Up". 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
