Area Government Issues Request Related To Juvenile Crime Prevention Programs

The Alexander County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC) has studied the risk factors and needs of Juvenile Court-involved youth in Alexander County and has issued a Request for Proposals.

The JCPC anticipates funds from the NC Dept. of Public Safety in the amount of $140,199 to fund the program types specified below. Such programs will serve delinquent and at-risk youth for the state fiscal year 2022-2023 beginning on or after July 1, 2022. The use of these funds in this county require a 30 percent local match.

The JCPC will consider proposals for the following needed programs: Substance Abuse Assessments, Substance Abuse Treatment, Clinical Assessment, Teen Court, Parent/Family Skill Building, Mentoring, Restitution/Community Service, Vocational Development, Experiential Skill Building, Interpersonal Skill Building, Mediation/Conflict Resolution, Home-Based Counseling, Individual/Family/Group Counseling, Problem Sexual Behavior Assessment/Treatment, Temporary Shelter Care, Runaway Shelter Care, and Specialized/Temporary Foster Care.

Proposed program services should target the following risk factors for delinquency or repeat delinquency: school behavior problems, juveniles who associate with other delinquent peers, parenting skills, mental health, and reduction in juvenile recidivism.

Local public agencies, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporations, and local housing authorities are invited to submit applications to provide services addressing these areas of needs and risks. To apply for FY 2022-2023 JCPC funding, you must complete and submit your application online. by accessing NC ALLIES. Read and follow all instructions at https://cp.ncdjjdp.org/CP/.
