|Drug Treatment Courts Training and Technical Assistance Program|
This program will fund training and technical assistance (TTA) to states, state and local courts, units of local government, and tribal governments that will build their capacity to develop, maintain, and enhance drug courts for juveniles and parents/guardians with substance abuse problems or co-occurring mental health disorders, specifically those related to opioid abuse.

|Enhancements for Juvenile Indigent Defense|
This program will support states and localities in developing and implementing tools and strategies to ensure that youth involved with the juvenile justice system have fair and equal access to high-quality legal representation and to resources that address the collateral consequences of justice system involvement. This program will provide funding to states and localities to enhance juvenile defense in one or more of the following areas: staff training, data collection and analysis, juvenile defense delivery system analyses, and/or addressing a specific need(s) identified by the state or locality related to juvenile defense services delivery.
|NIJ Funding Opportunity: National Juvenile Justice Data Analysis Program|
This is a funding opportunity from the National Institute of Justice. This includes funding from OJJDP.
NIJ seeks proposals for funding to ensure that vital statistical information is available to the field regarding juvenile risk behaviors, juvenile victimization, juvenile offending, and the juvenile justice system’s response to law-violating behavior. The successful applicant will accomplish this by supporting and enhancing the National Juvenile Justice Data Analysis Program through innovative analysis of complex data and issues, and dissemination strategies that advance the relevance, utility, and accessibility of national juvenile justice data for the juvenile justice community and the public.
|Comprehensive School-Based Approach to Youth Violence and Victimization|
This program supports a comprehensive effort to address youth violence and victimization through implementing evidence-based prevention, intervention, and accountability efforts in a school-based setting.
|Coordinated Assistance to States Program|
This program will help enhance state and local juvenile justice systems, and help states comply with the Formula Grants Program authorized under the JJDP Act. Funding under this program will be used to support states, territories, tribes, and communities with resources and training and technical assistance (TTA) to plan, operate, and assess delinquency prevention, intervention, and juvenile justice systems improvement projects to ensure they are in compliance with the four core requirements of the Formula Grants Program.
|Family Drug Court Program|
The OJJDP Family Drug Court Program seeks to build the capacity of states, state and local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized tribal governments to sustain existing family drug courts or establish new family drug courts. Family drug courts serve parents who require treatment for a substance abuse disorder and who are involved with the child welfare system as a result of child abuse, neglect, or other parenting issues.
|Juvenile Drug Treatment Court Program|
The purpose of this solicitation is to provide support to juvenile courts that intend to establish a new JDTC or to enhance existing JDTCs. This program is authorized by 34 U.S.C. 10611 et seq., which requires that any drug treatment court that this program funds prohibit participation by violent offenders.
|Supporting Victims of Gang Violence Grant Program|
This program supports the efforts of eligible applicant organizations to increase the availability of direct support services for victims of gang-related violence and to develop or enhance the responses to children and youth exposed to gang-related violence in their homes, schools, and communities.
|Addressing the Training Needs of Juvenile Prosecutors|
Prosecutors play a key role in ensuring an effective juvenile justice system. Nationally, there are very limited resources available to state and local juvenile prosecution offices for necessary training, education and professional development. Furthermore, a need exists for the continued development and enhancement of national, state, and local standards and technical assistance to foster continuous improvement in the field. The FY 2019 Addressing the Training Needs of Juvenile Prosecutors program is designed to fill these gaps.
|Youth Gang Suppression Implementation Grants Program|
OJJDP is seeking proposals from applicant jurisdictions interested in preventing or reducing gang violence to implement suppression strategies outlined in the OJJDP Comprehensive Gang Model as part of a community- and data-driven response to gang-related crime and violence. Under this initiative, OJJDP expects successful applicants to reduce violent crime, gangs, and youth victimization and enhance public safety in communities through gang suppression efforts for gang-involved youth or youth at risk of becoming gang involved.
|Second Chance Act Youth Offender Reentry Program|
The Second Chance Act Youth Offender Reentry Program supports states, local governments, and tribal governments in partnership with interested persons (including Federal corrections and supervision agencies), service providers, and nonprofit organizations to provide
