The U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is seeking applications for the FY2017 Second Chance Act: Implementing County and Statewide Plans to Improve Outcomes for Youth in the Juvenile Justice System Program. The program will provide grants to support counties and states that have developed a recidivism-reduction plan to better align juvenile justice policy, practice, and resource allocation with what research shows works to reduce recidivism and improve outcomes for youth in the juvenile justice system. The target population should be all youth in the juvenile justice system, with a specific emphasis on those who are assessed as having a moderate or high risk for reoffending; under community supervision; and placed in or returning from a period of incarceration in state, local, and privately run facilities.
Applications are due June 29. Learn more and apply.
