Arts Programs for Justice-Involved Youth
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) seeks applications for funding to develop, enhance, or expand arts programs for justice-involved youth. This program furthers the DOJ’s mission by supporting high-quality arts 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. OJJDP defines justice-involved youth as those participating in court-ordered diversion programs in detention, correctional, or other residential facilities, and/or who are on probation due to a delinquency finding by juvenile court.
With this solicitation, OJJDP seeks to support high-quality arts programs for justiceinvolved youth to reduce juvenile delinquency, recidivism, and/or other problem and highrisk behaviors. This project seeks to support and strengthen collaborations between artsbased organizations and juvenile justice systems to develop, expand, or enhance effective interventions, which may involve emphasizing the unique capability of the art interventions to enhance protective factors and reduce risk factors that lead to justice system involvement, including individual characteristics, social influences, and community conditions.
