Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $12,500)
The Title V Community Prevention Grants Program intends to reduce risks and enhance protective factors to prevent at-risk youth from entering the juvenile justice systems and to intervene with first-time and non-serious offenders to keep them out of the juvenile justice system.
The Virgin Islands Law Enforcement Planning Commission plans to fund structured programs for early intervention into the lives of children who have entered the juvenile justice system through delinquency or at-risk behavior. Programs will provide prevention and intervention services to reduce the likelihood of delinquent behavior. The population to be served will be youth from 5 to 18 years of age and their families. Quarterly performance measure data reports will be required. (NCA/NCF)
