  Abstract: In 1992 Title V of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, as amended, established a new delinquency prevention program, Incentive Grants for Local Delinquency Prevention Programs -- referred to as the Community Prevention Grants Program -- to assist and encourage communities to focus on preventing juveniles from entering the juvenile justice system. This 1998 Report to Congress begins with a review of current trends in juvenile justice and the role the Community Prevention Grants Program plays in the prevention and control of juvenile 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, including training, technical assistance, evaluation support, and funding. The third chapter examines the experiences of States and communities as they move from the theoretical model to practical applications, identifies barriers encountered by grantees and subgrantees during implementation, and highlights State and local strategies for overcoming these barriers and facilitating success. The fourth chapter discusses the coordination of State and Federal efforts to support local delinquency prevention. The last chapter reviews the Federal commitment to delinquency prevention and the promise it holds for moving toward a healthier, safer future for the Nation's children and families. 66 references and appended risk factors for unhealthy adolescent behaviors
