The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is seeking applications for funding under the fiscal year (FY) 2017 Juvenile Justice Systems Reform Promising Practices.

    • reports that synthesize data and resources collected from OJJDP’s juvenile justice reform programs;
    • reports and materials that highlight policies, strategies, and models from OJJDP’s juvenile justice reform programs;
    • tools that interpret relevant program information from juvenile justice reform policies and strategies, including relevant juvenile justice measures, reductions in recidivism and out-of-home placement, the savings accrued and costs averted, and the portion of costs saved or averted that has been or will be invested in high-performing strategies, that have been collected under OJJDP’s juvenile justice reform programs; and
    • publications on topics of relevance for state, tribal, and local policymakers who are planning or implementing juvenile justice system reform efforts, such as informational briefs or reports on the experiences of sites apart from OJJDP’s juvenile justice reform programs.
  • Coordination and facilitation of meetings, webinars, and roundtables, to assist OJJDP’s juvenile justice reform programs with sharing success stories, models, lessons learned, and program outcomes.
  • Development and dissemination of publications and online resources, to be housed on OJJDP’s website, that will highlight reform efforts, models, and lessons learned from OJJDP’s juvenile justice reform programs.
