Juvenile Delinquency Prevention Grant

​The Iowa Department of Human Rights Division of Criminal and Juvenile Justice Planning (CJJP) was awarded Juvenile Delinquency Prevention discretionary grant funding from the federal Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The Iowa Juvenile Justice Advisory Council, a state advisory group, has invested additional funds distributed through this competitive award process. 

The focus of the funding is for communities to implement or expand pre-charge diversion programs for juveniles over the next five years. The goal of the Delinquency Prevention grants program is to help youth avoid involvement in delinquency by reducing risk factors and enhancing protective factors in their schools, communities, and families. Grant applications are due May 27; more information is available on the Iowa Department of Human Rights website.
