Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $21,495)
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.
Oregon Department of Education intends to support the third year of the community prevention projects currently supported by Title V funds in local jurisdictions. One funded delinquency prevention program primarily addresses delinquency prevention issues for American Indians. Other local efforts are designed to address the disproportionate number of juvenile members of minority groups who come into contact with the juvenile justice system through the implementation of the Collective Impact Model Strategies.
