Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $50,000)

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 Office of the Commissioner of Municipal Affairs (OCMA) has indicated that FY 2011 Title V funding will be utilized to support prevention efforts of two local communities in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Prospective sub-grantees will submit applications that address a need for school-based services, including educational programming and/or related services to prevent truancy, suspension and expulsion. Such programs may also include support for school resource officers and law-related education. NCA/NCF
