FY 17 Juvenile Justice Incentive Grant Program

In keeping with Governor Deal's goal of increasing public safety through a more effective juvenile system, the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council has issued the Juvenile Justice Incentive Grant Request for Proposals, seeking local juvenile projects that include evidence-based program models that have been shown to reduce juvenile recidivism. For more details on these funding opportunities, please visit cjcc.georgia.gov.

The aim of this offering is to provide funds for juvenile courts to initiate community-centered, evidence-based services for children in lieu of out of home placements, as appropriate.

In order to measure local communities progress towards reducing out of home placements during State Fiscal Year 17, the following information is provided as a guide to previous years. Applicant counties should include their FY15 data in their application to show their targeted reduction in felony commitments and STP placements. This data can also be used to show success from previous grant years.

Questions concerning this funding opportunity should be directed to the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council.
