II. Setting the Wheels in Motion: The Allocation of Title V Resources|
Over the past 5 years (1994 to 1998), 619 communities in 49 States, Washington, D.C., and 4 Territories have received Title V Community Prevention Grants. In 1998, the Community Prevention Grants Program continued providing the framework, tools, and funding necessary for communities nationwide to assess their needs, mobilize their resources, and address their juvenile crime problems with effective delinquency prevention strategies. Program training, technical assistance, and evaluation support has guided communities in planning, implementing, and monitoring their own risk- and protection-focused prevention efforts. This chapter describes the Title V resources that have been provided to participating jurisdictions to date.
