Juvenile Justice will award grants for alternatives to detention
By Mike Wynn
Frankfort, KY - On April 1, the Department of Juvenile Justice will begin accepting applications for the Reducing Out-of-Home Placements Grant Program, which supports alternatives to secure detention for low-level juvenile offenders.
Approximately $80,000 will be available through the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention in the U.S. Department of Justice.
The funds have been earmarked for public and private non-profit organizations, or city and county governments, that provide emergency shelter services in the Fayette and Hardin juvenile detention catchment area.
Funds will be dispersed as a sub-grant to local non-profit agencies and/or local units of government. The grant recipient must provide alternatives to secure detention for juveniles who have been released from law enforcement custody with supervision or have been released from court. Funds will be awarded as a per diem for services.
The application can be accessed from April 1 through May 1, 2017 via the Department of Juvenile Justice website at http://djj.ky.gov. The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. May 1, 2017. For more information, contact Stephanie Reynolds at 502-573-2738 or by email at StephanieL.Reynolds@ky.gov.
The funding cycle for the grant will be July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018.
