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 Oregon Commission on Children and Families (OCCF) is the designated State agency to receive Title V funds in the State of Oregon. It is estimated that four continuation sub-grants will be supported with the FY 2011 Title V allocation, based on the performance of the grantees and availability of funds. Title V Program Areas that will be given priority consideration include Disproportionate Minority Contact (Program Area #10) and American Indian Programs (Program Area #22). The program intends to reduce risks factors and enhance protective factors to prevent at-risk youth from entering the juvenile justice system and to provide intervention services for first-time and non-serious offenders.
