OJJDP FY 2012 Juvenile Justice Reform and Reinvestment Demonstration Program


The Juvenile Justice Reform and Reinvestment Demonstration Program is a new initiative that is made possible through the Office of Management and BudgetÂ’s (OMB) Partnership Fund for Program Integrity Innovation (the Partnership Fund) . This solicitation will provide funds to three state and/or local administering agencies for juvenile justice to develop and implement an integrated set of evidence-based and cost-measurement tools that will enable them to make informed decisions about resources and services for justice-involved youth. OJJDP will expect awardees to fully participate in training and technical assistance and an evaluation of this initiative. The initiative will determine whether systematic use of these tools helps awardees realign services and costs and ensure the provision of the right services, for the right youth, for the right duration of time. This program is authorized by Pub. L. 111-117, 123 Stat. 3034, 3171 and Pub. L. 112-74, 125 Stat. 786, 898.

Applicant Eligibility
Applicants are limited to units of local government, including state agencies (only if targeted to a local community), and public agencies. Units of local government that apply must be the state’s local administering agency for juvenile justice. Municipal governments may submit applications as part of a larger application from the county or state within which they are located. Units of government may partner as coapplicants, when necessary, to achieve the goals of this solicitation; however, a lead agency must be identified. States may submit only one application, regardless of whether the lead applicant is a state or local agency. In addition, OJJDP will consider only applications from states determined to be in compliance with Sections 223(a)(11), (12), (13), and (22) (the core requirements) of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDP Act) for FY 2012 funding. The list of states in compliance with the core requirements is included as Appendix A. To be considered, applicants must provide the following with their application to Grants.gov: • A signed letter of commitment from the state juvenile justice administering agency identifying the local jurisdiction(s) within the state in which this pilot will be administered and the state agency’s support of the application (if the lead applicant is the local agency). The letter must explain that OJJDP has determined that the state is in compliance with the four core requirements of the JJDP Act for FY 2012 funding. • The lead applicant must also provide a letter indicating its agreement to: o Begin full implementation of this pilot by March 1, 2013. This includes having staff onboard, being prepared to begin training, and participating in program meetings at the local site. o Set aside $249,000 of the award from OJJDP to cover training and technical assistance costs for implementation of the protocol and tools. OJJDP has selected Georgetown University’s Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) to provide training and technical assistance under this initiative. By March 1, 2013, awardees must enter into signed and executed agreements with CJJR for training and technical assistance, as required under this award. Applicants must describe in brief their organizational requirements and assure the execution of this contract between October 1, 2012, and March 1, 2013. o Actively participate in and comply with all requirements of the evaluation of this demonstration program.
