The U.S. Department of Justice Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has two grants available for eligible non-profits that provide training and technical assistance related to at-risk youth and children involved in the juvenile justice system.
The first is the OJJDP FY 2013 VOCA Regional Children's Advocacy Centers Program. It seeks to establish four regional Children’s Advocacy Centers that will develop, train, and coordinate teams to respond to child abuse and neglect. Because these teams will require a great deal of coordination and collaboration, eligible applicants must work in partnership with other programs funded by the VOCA Act. Grants will be up to $1,125,000 and applications are due by May 29, 2013. Read the full grant announcement for more information.
The other available grant is the FY 2013 National Training and Technical Assistance Center for Youth in Custody. The successful applicant will operate the new Training and Technical Assistance Center which will serve the range of facilities in which juveniles are placed, and focus on the rehabilitative goals of juvenile detention. The Center will provide comprehensive training, technical assistance, and resources directly to justice facilities. It will also update and contribute to the knowledge base of best practices. One grant of $400,000 will be awarded. Applications are due May 29, 2013. Read the full grant announcement for more information.
