  Abstract: The Title V Community Prevention Grants Program provides funding and a guiding framework for communities interested in developing and implementing comprehensive juvenile delinquency prevention programs. Chapter 1 reviews the conceptual framework of Title V, including the importance of prevention activities and the role that risk and protective factors play in the outcomes of at-risk youth. Current knowledge about “what works” in delinquency prevention is presented, as are prominent examples of research-based prevention programs. Chapter 2 outlines the structure of the Title V Community Prevention Grants Program and updates the Federal Title V allocations and State subgrant awards for 2002. Training and technical assistance is offered to grantees; the report describes these services and curriculum and presents evaluation results from training sessions. Chapter 3 recounts the experiences of Title V communities in implementing, assessing, and sustaining their programs. The facilitating factors and barriers to implementing and sustaining local programs are explored; main facilitating factors were supportive schools, quality training services, and community support and activism. The final chapter contains recommendations for program modifications, including requiring evidence-based and results-driven programming; requiring performance measurement and evaluation; building and enhancing capacity through training and technical assistance; and administering Title V as a discretionary grant program.
