2018 Title II Grant Program

The Title II Grant program is funded by the U.S. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) to support delinquency prevention and juvenile justice system improvement. This grant will fund: 1) Aftercare/Reentry, 2) Alternatives to Detention, 3) Community-Based Programs & Services, 4) Diversion, 5) Mental Health Services and 6) Mentoring, Counseling & Training Programs. These projects will also target the reduction of the overrepresentation of youth of color in contact with the juvenile justice system. In addition, funds from the Title II Grant program have been set aside for federally recognized tribal governments that serve at-risk youth using the beliefs and values as defined by the Gathering of Native (GONA) principle.
