JJDP Act Title V
Group: Iowa Division of Criminal & Juvenile Justice Planning
Title V of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 1974 established the "Incentive Grants for Local Delinquency Prevention", commonly known as the Community Prevention Grants programs. Working from a research-based framework, this program focuses on reducing risks and enhancing protective factors to prevent youth from entering into the juvenile justice system. It offers funding incentive to encourage community leaders to initiate multidisciplinary assessments of risks and resources unique to their communities and to develop comprehensive, collaborative plans to prevent delinquency. To enhance the capacity of communities to formulate, implement, and evaluate comprehensive delinquency prevention plans, OJJDP sponsors orientation training for community leaders. CJJP has incorporated this funding stream into the State of Iowa Juvenile Justice/Youth Development block grant program and uses the local Decat board as the multidisciplinary team required as a part of the community process.
