Grants to Georgia government entities for programs that benefit local youth. The purpose of this program is to reduce crime and recidivism. Funding is intended to increase public safety and reduce the number of juveniles committed to the state's justice system. Grant recipients will employ evidenced-based programming that addresses the needs of community youth.

The purpose of this grant opportunity is to provide funding for local programs designed to serve youth in the community who would otherwise be committed to DJJ. Applicants are encouraged to examine their local data from the previous fiscal year in order to understand the profiles of youth who were committed to DJJ, and who, with appropriate services, could have received services while remaining in their community. Recipients of this grant opportunity will be employing evidenced-based programming appropriate to the needs of youth in the community.

Bolstering a continuum of community support services and supervision has been shown to reduce recidivism, while promoting a positive relationship among youth, their families, and the community. Support services may include family and community reintegration and prevention services, basic life skills, job skills and employment training, job placement, educational support, and mentoring and apprenticeship opportunities. 

High priority will be given to applications that specifically formulate strategies to reduce the applicant county’s annual felony commitment rate to DJJ and reduce the applicant county’s annual number of Short-Term Program admissions. High priority will be given to the eighteen (18) counties who commit the highest numbers of juveniles to the DJJ. 

Program Activities:
  • Community Service /Restitution
  • Evening Report Center
  • Juvenile Drug Court
  • Diversion Services
  • Tutoring
  • Counseling Services
