FY2023 Juvenile Justice and Delinquency One-Time Funding Initiative

The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) is making federal funds through the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act Title II Formula Grants Program available to local units of government, state agencies, juvenile detention centers for one-time requests. The goal of this funding initiative is to provide applicants with an opportunity to request funds to enhance existing juvenile justice programs or projects, including initiatives to reduce youth gun violence, as they relate to the JJDP Act priority areas. 

Funds awarded for this initiative may only be utilized for Consultants, Travel, Subsistence, Equipment, and/or Supplies and Other Expenses. Awards will be considered on a competitive basis, and applicants must address all the key components outlined in these grant guidelines to be eligible for consideration. 

Funds must be expended by September 30, 2023 and should be used for limited-focus, time-limited expenditures or training. Examples of allowable purchases include software to enhance a direct service program, computers or other equipment, equipment or supplies in secure facilities to enhance compliance with the JJDP Act, assessment or evaluation services, consultant fees, training in evidence-based strategies or programs, or certification for staff as it relates to service delivery of evidence-based programs. The project period for this initiative is April 1, 2023 through September 30, 2023. Applicants seeking to support an existing project must be able to demonstrate what has been accomplished through the life of the project and how these funds will enhance its effectiveness. 

The Title II One-Time webinar scheduled for October 10, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. will be rescheduled. If you have registered, you will recieve an updated notice and meeting link.
