Funding to support states' implementation of innovative and/or research-based, data-informed recidivism-reduction policies, practices, and programs. across multiple juvenile justice system components and disciplines. OJJDP seeks to support states’ efforts to develop statewide juvenile justice policies to reduce reoffending, improve outcomes for youth, and end racial and ethnic disparities and to ensure that juvenile justice systems are aligned with developmentally appropriate, trauma-informed, evidence-based practices. Reforms can address multiple aspects of the system’s interaction with youth, including but not limited to arrest, diversion, adjudication and disposition, community supervision, and aftercare. Applicants are also encouraged to consider non-criminal justice centered interventions (e.g., interventions related to providing stable housing or educational opportunities) that can reduce likelihood of reoffending and increase likelihood of positive youth outcomes.
