Grants to USA and territories state governments and cooperative agreements to nonprofit and for-profit organizations, Tribes, and IHEs to provide services and support for justice-involved youth and their families. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to applying.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) seeks applications for funding to close and repurpose youth correctional facilities, reinvest cost savings to expand community-based alternatives to incarceration, and assess and respond to the economic impact of closures on facility staff and surrounding communities. This program furthers the DOJ’s mission to reduce recidivism and improve public safety by helping states more effectively and equitably reinvest resources to efforts that facilitate the successful rehabilitation of justice-involved youth.

This initiative will support states to close youth correctional facilities, assess and respond to the impact of closures on facility staff and the surrounding communities, and reinvest state and local resources to support more effective community-based services and supports for justice-involved youth and their families. The initiative will support the development and implementation of innovative strategies for closing youth correctional facilities and reinvesting cost savings in community-based solutions that promote positive outcomes for youth, increase public safety, and strengthen families and neighborhoods.
