Annotation: The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), a division of the Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs, provides direction and assistance to national, State, and local programs to combat juvenile delinquency, improve the administration of juvenile justice, and aid missing and exploited children and their families.
Abstract: This kit provides information on all competitive programs administered by OJJDP and is designed to facilitate applications for financial assistance, particularly by those unfamiliar with the application process. The section on administrative and application requirements describes eligibility; the application review process evaluation; discretionary grant continuation policy; financial requirements; civil rights requirements; certification regarding lobbying, responsibility matters, and drug-free workplace requirements; audit requirements; disclosure of Federal participation; and reasons for suspending or terminating funding. Competitive discretionary programs described under the rubric of juvenile justice cover serious, violent, and chronic offender program development; accountability-based community intervention programs; law- related education in juvenile justice settings; innovative approaches in law-related education; hate crime study and prevention; and due process advocacy program development. Missing children programs funded by OJJDP focus on investigative case management for missing children homicides; study of the effectiveness of private investigators in locating parentally abducted children; issues in resolving cases of international parental abductions; criminal justice response to parental abduction cases; and the Missing Children's Field-Initiated Program. 6 appendixes
