With this solicitation, OJJDP seeks to support states' and counties' implementation of
innovative and/or research-based, data-informed recidivism-reduction policies, practices,
and programs across multiple juvenile justice system components and disciplines, and
sustainable strategies for reinvesting resulting costs saved or averted into effective
juvenile justice prevention and intervention programs.

Through this solicitation, OJJDP seeks to support states' and counties' efforts to develop
statewide or countywide juvenile justice policies to reduce reoffending, improve
outcomes for youth, and meaningfully reduce racial and ethnic disparities and to ensure
that juvenile justice systems are aligned with developmentally appropriate, trauma informed, evidence-based practices. Reforms can address multiple aspects of the system's interaction with youth, including but not limited to arrest, diversion, adjudication and disposition, community supervision, and aftercare. Applicants are also encouraged to consider non-criminal-justice centered interventions (e.g., interventions related to providing stable housing or educational opportunities) that can reduce the likelihood of reoffending and increase the likelihood of positive youth outcomes.
