All agencies wishing to submit a new Juvenile Justice application and/or a Juvenile Justice continuation application to the Office of the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division (CJD) must attend an NCTCOG Grant Application Workshop in order to be eligible to apply for FY18 CJD funds.
The purpose of the Juvenile Justice Grant Program is to support programs that prevent violence in school areas and to improve the juvenile justice system through developing effective education, training, prevention, diversion, treatment, and rehabilitation programs in the area of juvenile delinquency.
The attendance of an applicant agency at any one of the workshop sessions, regardless of project type, will satisfy the mandatory attendance requirement as set forth in the Policies & Procedures. Therefore, if your agency is applying for more than one type of project, attendance is only required at any one of the project-specific workshops.
Note: If your agency anticipates using a grant writer who is not an employee of your organization, an organization employee must also attend. Furthermore, contract grant writers will not be allowed to sign in for multiple agencies they may be representing. It is imperative that the applicant agency sends a staff person in order to be clear on the submission process and scoring criteria associated with this region.
Important: Read the Juvenile Justice Grant Program Funding Announcement below to determine if your agency is eligible to apply and that your proposed project fits within the eligibility criteria. Other handouts will be posted as they become available.
