Subject: Juvenile Justice, Minority Youth, Race/Ethnicity, Youth Incarceration
Deadline: Feb. 23, 2017

"The project will support the implementation of a major OJJDP initiative to address racial and ethnic disparities in the juvenile justice system, further strengthening OJJDP's support for the core requirement to reduce disproportionate minority contact of youth with the juvenile justice system. To this end, this solicitation will establish the Technical Assistance Center to End Racial and Ethnic Disparities in the Juvenile Justice System, which will provide tailored education, training, technical assistance, and resources to state, local, and tribal governments and private organizations to help them address their needs in reducing disproportionate minority contact.

The resource center will also help identify and implement promising and evidence-based strategies that have a sound theoretical basis and/or have demonstrated measurable success in reducing disproportionate minority contact. In addition, the technical assistance project, under the direction and guidance of OJJDP, will provide funding resources to state, local, and/or tribal governments to promulgate and implement evidence-based, culturally and gender-sensitive approaches to reduce disproportionate minority contact at the various contact points throughout the juvenile justice system. The resource center will also document, disseminate, and train on best practices, including community-driven solutions that demonstrate measurable results in reducing disproportionate minority contact."
