Grants to New Jersey nonprofits, for-profits, and public agencies in eligible communities for community-based services to reduce juvenile delinquency and assist at-risk juveniles. Funding is intended to divert youth from the juvenile court system and prevent youth from engaging in anti-social and delinquent behavior. Eligible applicants serve the residents of Morris County.

All applications under this section must meet at least one of the following program goals:

  • 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

Funding Stream 1: State/Community Partnership:

  1. 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 the 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 than the general population.
  2. Diversion: The stage of the juvenile system that 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 information 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.
  3. Detention/Alternatives: Detention Step-Down programs
  4. 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 of their delinquent behavior. 

Funding Stream 2: Family Court:

  1. Diversion: The stage of the juvenile justice system that 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.
