Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $12,500)
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 Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), Criminal Justice Planning Agency (CJPA), plans to utilize FY 2011 Title V funds for delinquency prevention programs that serve youth in schools and in the community. The majority of the funds will be made available through requests for proposals to interested and eligible applicants. To measure program progress towards goals and ensure compliance with OJJDP core requirements, CJPA conducts technical assistance workshops for awarded programs and also monitors the progress of each program by collecting quarterly progress reports.
