The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has announced two fiscal year 2014 funding opportunities. Both applications are due by July 23, 2014.
- Enhancements to Juvenile Drug Courts. A Juvenile Drug Court provides comprehensive, developmentally appropriate, community-based services for youth who come in contact with the juvenile justice system due to alcohol or other drug use. OJJDP will make awards to currently operating Juvenile Drug Courts to enhance their capacity and the services they provide. Applicants must have an operating juvenile drug court.
- Family Drug Court Statewide System Reform. This state-level reform effort will expand family Drug Courts’ scale and scope to serve families in the child welfare system affected by parental substance use disorders and to improve family outcomes. Applicants are limited to the state Administrative Office of the Court (AOC), working in conjunction with and coordinating closely with the state’s Court Improvement Program (CIP).
Applicants must register with Grants.gov prior to submitting an application and are encouraged to register several weeks before the application submission deadline. Visit OJJDP’s funding page for more information about these grants and other current funding opportunities.
