Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $120,000)
OJJDP's Juvenile Justice System Improvement Grants program was established to provide grants and cooperative agreements to organizations that provide programs and services critical to the mission of OJJDP, and organizations that OJJDP has selected for funds in prior years. This program will be authorized by an Act appropriating funds for the Department of Justice. The purpose of this National Initiative is to explore, advance, assess, and disseminate information about strategies intended to enhance procedural justice, reduce implicit bias, and support racial reconciliation. The National Initiative involves multiple activities, including implementing strategies in pilot sites; establishing an information clearinghouse; conducting research; translating research for practitioner audiences; and developing strategies to further the public discourse about procedural justice, reducing bias, and supporting racial reconciliation as a means to build community trust. The funding will support a multi-strategy site coordinator in Minneapolis, MN. NCA/NCF
