  Annotation: This report describes the goals, activities, and accomplishments of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's (OJJDP) Community Prevention Grants Program, which aims to help communities develop research-based juvenile delinquency prevention programs.
Abstract: The program of incentive grants was established in 1992. It provides a theory-driven, research-based prevention framework; the tools, training, and technical assistance needed to bring a community together to build on that framework; local control of program planning and implementation; and seed funding for projects. The program focuses on risk factors and protective factors. Title V Community Prevention grants have gone to 477 communities in 47 States and 5 Commonwealths and Territories over the past 4 years. Communities vary in how far they have progressed in their juvenile delinquency prevention efforts. Michigan's experience demonstrates the uses and impacts of the program. In addition, in 1996 the Coordinating Council on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention established under Federal law published and disseminated the National Juvenile Justice Action Plan in 1996. OJJDP and its Federal partners have initiated steps to implement the action plan; OJJDP collaborates with other Federal agencies to offer delinquency prevention programs consistent with the Action Plan and the priority areas identified by Coordinating Council members. A long-term perspective and community-wide collaboration are crucial to successful juvenile delinquency prevention.
