Funding Opportunity To Support School Justice Collaboration Program

June 10, 2014

OJJDP Funding Announcement logoOJJDP has announced the fiscal year 2014 School Justice Collaboration Program: Keeping Kids in School and Out of Court funding opportunity. OJJDP is coordinating with the Department of Education and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to implement a multidisciplinary initiative to improve school climates, support student mental health and behavioral needs, avoid referring students to law enforcement as a disciplinary response, and facilitate a proactive and supportive school reentry process in the rare instances in which a youth is referred. OJJDP’s announcement has two components: One provides support to juvenile and family courts to partner with schools and law enforcement. The second will provide for technical assistance to the courts and other stakeholders working to reform discipline policy and practice. Applications are due by July 21, 2014.
