Grants to New Jersey nonprofit and for-profit entities in eligible locations to serve at-risk children and youth. Funding is intended to serve juveniles aged 7-21. Eligible activities are those that prevent juvenile delinquency, provide dispositional options for court-involved youth, or provide diversions from the Juvenile Justice System. Eligible applicants serve the residents of Morris County.

Funding Specifications: All applications for Juvenile Justice Funding must meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • To prevent juvenile delinquency
  • To provide diversions from the Juvenile Justice System
  • Provide dispositional options for court-involved youth
  • Services must serve youth ages 7-21

Based on identified priorities in the 2018 - 2020 Comprehensive County Youth Services Plan, program monitoring, quarterly reports and ongoing requests for services, the Department of Human Services is seeking to purchase the following services:

Funding Stream: State/Community Partnership

  • Delinquency Prevention: strategies and services designed to increase the likelihood that youth will remain free from initial involvement with the formal or informal juvenile justice system. The goal of delinquency prevention is to prevent the youth from engaging in anti social and delinquent behavior and from taking part in other problem behaviors that are pathways to delinquency. Primary delinquency prevention programs are those directed at the entire juvenile population without regard to risk of involvement in the juvenile justice system. Secondary Delinquency Prevention programs are those directed at youth who are at higher risk of involvement in the juvenile justice system then the general population.
  • Diversion – the stage of the juvenile justice system which offers alleged juvenile offenders an opportunity to avoid arrest and/or prosecution by providing alternatives to the formal juvenile justice system process. The goal is to provide services and/or informal sanctions to youth who have begun to engage in antisocial and low level delinquent behavior in an effort to prevent youth from continuing on a delinquent pathway.
  • Detention/Alternatives
  • Dispositional Options – the phase of the juvenile justice system where youth adjudicated delinquent are ordered by the court to comply with specific sanctions, supervision and services as a consequence for their delinquent behavior.

*Identified as a top Morris County need according to the 2018-2020 County Comprehensive Youth Services Plan

Funding Stream: Family Court
