Join OJJDP for Continuum of Care Grant Awards Announcement

Today at 10 a.m. ET, OJJDP Administrator Liz Ryan will announce the inaugural cohort of grantees for the FY 2023 Building Local Continuums of Care To Support Youth Success initiative. Awards total more than $17 million to 23 grantees and 3 training and technical assistance providers. This initiative is designed to prevent youth from entering or moving deeper into the juvenile justice system. Two grant recipients, the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency and the City of Philadelphia, will be highlighted during the event.

The initiative is part of OJJDP's Continuum of Care for Communities framework, which emphasizes evidence-based and promising programs and practices so that young people can access needed resources and services where they live and at every point in the juvenile justice system. The framework takes a holistic approach, spanning prevention, intervention, treatment, and reentry strategies that have been shown to advance public safety and improve outcomes for youth.
