Grants to Nebraska county governments, tribal government, and government collaborations for programs that address youth (ages 12-18) involved with the criminal justice system. Funding will be used for the development and implementation of a comprehensive community plan and service coordination.

Priority will be given to programs and services that will divert juveniles from the juvenile justice system, impact and effectively treat juveniles within the juvenile justice system, and reduce the juvenile detention population or assist juveniles in transitioning from out-of-home placements to in-home treatments.

Funds received through the Community-based Juvenile Services Aid Program shall be used exclusively to assist the aid recipient in the implementation and operation of programs or the provision of services identified in the aid recipient’s comprehensive juvenile services community plan, including:

-Programs for local planning and service coordination;
-Screening, assessment, and evaluation;
-Alternatives to detention;
-Family support services;
-Treatment services;
-Truancy prevention and intervention programs;
-Pilot projects approved by the commission;
-Payment of transportation costs to and from placements, evaluations, or services;
-Personnel when the personnel are aligned with evidence-based treatment principles, programs, or practices;
-Contracting with other state agencies or private organizations that provide evidence-based treatment or programs;
-Preexisting programs that are aligned with evidence-based practices or best practices; and
-Other services that will positively impact juveniles and families in the juvenile justice system.


The award period is July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018.

Applicants are limited to individual counties, multiple counties, federal or state recognized Indian tribes, or any combination of these entities.

In partnership with the Administrative Office of Probation, it has been agreed that programs, services, and placements primarily benefiting youth adjudicated delinquent, do not qualify for funding through the Community-based Juvenile Services Aid Program.
