Indiana Criminal Justice Institute - JJDP*
Maximum Grant Amount
November 22, 2023
The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute is accepting applications to the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (Title II) Formula Grant program.
The program works to fund improvements to the juvenile justice system, as well as help organizations develop delinquency prevention and intervention programs for Indiana’s youth. Title II is a competitive grant.
Guided by the Juvenile Justice State Advisory Group, the 2021-2024 strategic plan for Indiana outlines several priorities for Title II funding. Therefore, ICJI will only consider applications that fall under one of the following purpose areas AND have the greatest impact on Hoosier youth:
1. After-School Programs: Programs that provide at-risk youth and youth in the juvenile justice systems with a range of age-appropriate activities, including tutoring, mentoring, and other educational and enrichment activities.
2. Delinquency Prevention: Comprehensive juvenile justice and delinquency prevention programs that meet the needs of youth through collaboration of the many local systems before which a youth may appear, including schools, courts, law enforcement agencies, child protection agencies, mental health agencies, welfare services, health care agencies and private nonprofit agencies offering youth services.
3. Indigent Defense: Projects designed to develop and implement programs to protect the rights of youth affected by the juvenile justice system.
4. Mentoring, Counseling, and Training Programs: Programs to develop and sustain a consistent, prosocial relationship between a responsible adult (a mentor) and an at-risk youth, a youth who has offended, or a youth who has contact with a parent or legal guardian who is/was incarcerated (a mentee). These programs may support academic tutoring, vocational and technical training, and drug and violence prevention counseling.
5. Juvenile Justice System Improvement: Programs, research, and other initiatives to examine issues or improve practices, policies, or procedures on a systemwide basis (e.g., examining problems affecting decisions from arrest to disposition and detention to corrections.
Applicants must select only one of the priority areas per grant application. However, entities are eligible to submit multiple grant applications if they wish to address more than one priority area in separate grant programs.
A 10% match is required. The match may be cash or in-kind.
Please also be aware that this is a reimbursement-based grant.
