Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $521,610)

This program furthers the Department's mission by providing grants and cooperative agreements for training and technical assistance to organizations that OJJDP designates.

With OJJDP funding, the Center for Children’s Law and Policy proposes a training and technical assistance project designed to establish, operate, and maintain OJJDP’s Technical Assistance to End Racial and Ethnic Disparities in the Juvenile Justice System. This project seeks to achieve the following goals (1) assist state, local, and/or tribal governments in implementing DMC-reduction programs (e.g., OJJDP’s DMC-reduction model) and provide guidance in the areas of identification, assessment, intervention, evaluation, and monitoring; (2) improve the training and education of professionals who address racial and ethnic disparities in the juvenile justice system at the state and local levels to develop their capacity to create sustained long-term partnerships that foster systems change; (3) identify and disseminate promising and evidence-based strategies that have a sound theoretical basis and/or have demonstrated measurable success in reducing DMC; and (4) manage the project effectively and efficiently to ensure timely completion of all deliverables.
