Additional Information

This program furthers the DOJ’s mission by supporting high-quality art programs for current and previous justice-involved youth, including Tribal and Indigenous youth, to reduce juvenile delinquency, recidivism, and/or other problem and high-risk behaviors.

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) defines justice-involved youth as those participating in court-ordered diversion programs, in detention, correctional, or other residential facilities, and/or are on probation due to a delinquency finding by juvenile court.

Grant deliverables include the following:

  • Develop or expand partnerships with juvenile courts for justice-involved youth to participate in communitybased arts programs for diversion and probation.
  • Develop or expand partnerships with juvenile detention, correctional, and other residential facilities to provide arts programs for justice-involved youth.
  • Develop or expand high-quality community-based programs for previously justice-involved youth.
