Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $400,000)

OJJDP's Nonparticipating state program makes the Formula Grants program fund allocation available to local public or private nonprofit agencies within the state. The recipient agency must use the funds to carry out activities that support compliance with the requirements of 42 U.S.C. §§ 5633(a)(11), (12), (13), and (22) (the “core” requirements). This program will be authorized by an Act appropriating funds for the Department of Justice.

The purpose of Douglas County, Nebraska FY 2017 Nonparticipating State award is to further support the Department’s mission by carrying out activities that provide a comprehensive, coordinated, and communitywide approach to reducing incidences of ethnic and racial disparity and provide targeted strategies for disproportionate minority contact (DMC) reform. Douglas County, Nebraska's program goals are to (1) comply with 42 U.S.C §§ 5633 (a) sections 11, 12, and 13; (2) implement strategic and tactical efforts that ensure compliance with 42 U.S.C §§ 5633 (a) section (22) and that can be shared statewide with other communities struggling with DMC issues; and (3) hire and train competent professional staff to coordinate and monitor DMC-reduction efforts. These goals will be achieved through (1) hiring a full-time DMC/Title II compliance coordinator; (2) conducting a communitywide assessment of DMC; (3) providing training to staff, community providers, and citizens; (4) promoting active youth and family engagement; and (5) increasing community awareness. Progress will be measured through an evaluation process which includes semiannual performance metrics, desk audits, and site visits. No portion of the project budget will be used to conduct research.
