  Annotation: The U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) presents its 2006-2007 Report to Congress on the Title V Community Prevention Grants (CPG) Program, which was launched in 1994 to provide funds to help communities develop and implement delinquency prevention programs.
  Abstract: The report indicates that despite fluctuating levels in Federal funding for delinquency prevention programs over the years, the States and local units of government continue to value the CPG Program. This report documents the persistence and results of their efforts. As part of this effort, States have responded well to OJJDP’s request for States to provide performance data from their local CPG subgrantees. In 2004, OJJDP introduced a series of Title V performance measures for the purpose of documenting how well local delinquency prevention programs are meeting their goals. The current report presents the results and analysis of the second and third rounds of performance measurement data collected by OJJDP. Over time, local jurisdictions, States, and OJJDP will use lessons learned from the data for outcome management, resource allocation, strategic planning, and decisionmaking. Among the results reported are examples of the types of creative programs local jurisdictions have supported under CPG grant funding. Most projects served 13-year-olds and/or 14- to 15-year-olds. In both fiscal years, there were almost equal numbers of projects serving boys and girls. Two-thirds or more of all subgrant programs served African-American youth, and more than half served Hispanic/Latino youth. Almost all projects served either an at-risk youth population or first-time offenders. Many projects served youth with specialized needs, such as truants or youth who had dropped out of school, and youth with substance treatment needs. During fiscal year 2006, CPG programs served 73,683 youth and 32,094 families. During fiscal year 2007, CPG programs served 56,034 youth and 3,111 parents. 7 exhibits
