Applications will be available April 12, 2021, to apply for more than $340,000 in grant funding for the 2018 Title II Formula Grants Program through the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
The program is administered by the United States Department of Justice.
The 2018 Title II Formula Grants Program is made available to assist state and local governments in addressing juvenile crime through technical assistance, research, training, evaluation and effective programs for intervention.
Eligible applicants include public agencies and nonprofit programs. Local units of government (i.e. city or county) and private not-for-profit organizations may apply for these funds that provide direct care services to discernable at-risk youth, ages 10 to 16. These funds should be used to support collaborative, community-based delinquency prevention efforts that are designed to keep at-risk youth and low-level non-serious offenders from entering or reentering the juvenile justice system.
All applications must be submitted online via Intelligrants, the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet’s electronic Grants Management System. New applicants will be required to establish an account and become familiar with the system well in advance of the due date. Applicants should also note that validating a new user account requires 48 to 72 hours.
Applications are due by May 17 at 6 p.m. EST and awards are expected to be announced in June.
Assistance with the application process may be obtained by contacting Grants Management staff at JUSGMB@ky.gov.
