The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) plans to expand its Model Programs Guide to include strategies and programs that are effective in reducing Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC). To this end, OJJDP is inviting nominations of strategies and programs believed to be effective responses to DMC. State agencies that receive grant funds from OJJDP have been asked to submit nominations of such programs.
The purpose of this announcement is to invite nominations of DMC reduction initiatives regardless of funding sources. Programs are eligible for nomination if they have been in operation for at least 2 years and data documenting effectiveness are available.
All nominations received will be reviewed by OJJDP for inclusion in a database of effective DMC initiatives and potential eventual addition to the Model Programs Guide.
Examples of DMC reduction initiatives may be found at
The nomination form may be accessed at nomination.rtf
Examples of evaluation data that may be used to document effectiveness may be found at http://www.ojjdp.gov/dmc/resources/evaluationdata.html.
