Request Issued For Juvenile Crime Prevention Council Funding In Alexander County

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 North Carolina Department of Public Safety in the amount of $140,199 to fund programs. Such programs will serve delinquent and at-risk youth for the state fiscal year 2023-2024 beginning on or after July 1, 2023. The use of these funds in this county requires a 30 percent local match.

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

Proposed program services should target the following risk factors for delinquency or repeat delinquency: juveniles who associate with other negative/delinquent/gang-involved peers, delinquent behavior of youth under the age of 12, parenting skills/family criminal history, mental health (substance use and victimization), and school behavior problems.

Local public agencies, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporations, and local housing authorities are invited to submit applications to provide services addressing the previously mentioned elements. To apply for FY 2023-2024 JCPC funding, agencies must complete and submit the application online by accessing NC ALLIES. Read and follow all instructions at https://cp.ncdjjdp.org/CP/.

An information session will be held virtually on Friday, January 18 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. This meeting is mandatory for new programs that are interested in applying for funds. For login details or for more information about the Alexander County JCPC Request for Proposals, contact Area Consultant Scott Stoker at 704-956-3984.
