With this solicitation, OJJDP will provide funding to communities to support girls age 17 and younger who are at risk of involvement and/or are involved in the juvenile justice system. Funding will support communities to develop, enhance, or expand early intervention programs and/or treatment services for girls involved in the juvenile justice system.
