OJJDP FY 09 Demonstration Programs Division Grants was established to provide grants, cooperative agreements and other assistance to organizations designated by OJJDP, as authorized by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2002 (42 U.S.C. Sections 5601 et seq.) and statutes appropriating funds for juvenile justice programs.

The Information Sharing to Prevent Juvenile Delinquency Project is developing a national model for information sharing to assist state and local jurisdictions institute cross agency collaboration, confidentiality procedures and information technologies that facilitate the appropriate exchange of information. The Center for Network Development proposes to deliver targeted assistance to jurisdictional juvenile justice and other youth serving agencies to implement and evaluate the Guidelines for Juvenile Information Sharing (JIS), and to deploy and assess jurisdiction-specific data and information exchanges using the Juvenile Justice XML Data Model (JJXDM), which is in conformance with national XML standards including the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM). Model requirements will be documented, and presented in web-based training events. In FY 2009 CND proposes to complete the application, testing and modification of the model with two pilot sites after which time the model will be fully deployable.
