Annotation: This 1999 Annual Report to Congress presents the experiences and accomplishments of States and communities that are implementing the Community Prevention Grants Program in 1999.
Abstract: In the 1992 amendments to the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, Congress established Title V -- Incentive Grants for Local Delinquency Prevention Programs, referred to as the Community Prevention Grants Program. Drawing on the best available research, this groundbreaking program provides the framework, tools, and funding for States and communities to establish comprehensive, community-based strategies that deter youth from becoming involved in the juvenile justice system. Under the requirements of Section 504(4) of Title V, this annual report describes activities and accomplishments of grant activities funded under Title V; describes procedures followed to disseminate grant activity products and research findings; describes activities conducted to develop policy and to coordinate Federal agency and interagency efforts related to delinquency prevention; and identifies successful approaches and makes recommendations for future activities conducted under Title V. The first chapter of this report reviews current trends in juvenile justice and the role the Community prevention Grants Program plays in the prevention and control of youth problem behaviors. The second chapter provides an overview of the allocation of Title V resources that have been provided to participating States and communities to date. The third chapter examines the impact the Community Prevention Grants Program has had in changing community norms nationwide related to collaboration and systems-level change. In the fourth chapter, the coordination of State and Federal efforts to support local delinquency prevention is discussed. The last chapter reviews the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's commitment to delinquency prevention and the promise it holds for moving toward a healthier, safer future for America's children, youth, and families. Appended discussion of risk factors for unhealthy adolescent behaviors and 62 references
