Abstract
A summary of findings from this report include: for fiscal year 2009, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) awarded nearly $1.8 million in grants to States through the Title V Community Prevention Grants Program; programs funded with these monies served 24,610 youth, with 85 percent of the youth completing program requirements; and 65 percent of participants in funded programs showed positive behavior changes targeted by the program, such as improved school attendance, decreased antisocial behavior, improved family relationships, decreased substance use, and increased self-esteem. This report to Congress presents information on the results of programs funded through OJJDP's Title V Community Prevention Grants Program. The program provides Federal funds to local communities to assist in the development and implementation of delinquency prevention programs. These funds may be allocated to 1 or more of 19 prevention program areas: Child Abuse and Neglect Programs; Children of Incarcerated Parents; Delinquency Prevention; Disproportionate Minority Contact; Diversion; Gangs; Gender-Specific Services; Gun Programs; Hate Crimes; Job Training; Juvenile System Improvement; Mental Health Services; Mentoring; American Indian Programs; Restitution/Community Service; Rural Area Juvenile Programs; School Programs; Substance Abuse; and Youth (or Teen) Courts.
