Funding to Reform Youth Out-of-Home Placement, Seeks Better Options

Agency: Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP-DOJ); Program: Smart on Juvenile Justice: Out-of-Home Placement (CFDA Number: 16.540) (Funding Opportunity Number: OJJDP-2017-10980); Eligibility: State governments; Funding: $750,000 for three awards (no match required); Deadline: Feb. 22.

Summary: The program will expand the use of community-based alternatives to out-of-home placement in juvenile delinquency and criminal incidents and minimize approaches based solely on control and deterrence in favor of individualized treatment and services.

Specifically, governments will implement reforms to reduce their use of out-of-home placement to include: use of validated risk and needs assessment instruments to more effectively determine whether out-of-home placement is the appropriate and necessary; develop a continuum of community-based alternatives to detention and placement in jurisdictions that have identified a need through a comprehensive resource inventory; implement policies to reduce the use of out-of-home placement; and create reform strategies, such as realignment and reinvestment, to reduce the use of out-of-home placement.
