The Juvenile Justice System Reform Initiative will support states to implement sustainable, research-based, and data-informed recidivism reduction policies, practices, and programming, and the strategic reinvestment of cost savings into effective prevention and intervention programs.

This program will provide funding to support states to develop, implement, and test innovative and research-based responses to crime and other public safety and community challenges, as identified through data analysis. 

Challenges may include chronic crime problems, emerging crime problems, or barriers to juvenile justice agencies' ability to address such problems, including those related to youth arrest, detention, referral to court, diversion, adjudication, disposition to probation, out-of-home-placement, other sanctions or services, and aftercare, or lack of information sharing or technology integration within the juvenile justice systems.

This solicitation provides funding for two categories—Category 1: Juvenile Justice System Reform Grants and Category 2: Juvenile Justice System Reform Initiative Training and Technical Assistance.
