Title V Incentive Grants for Local Delinquency Prevention Programs. 2008 Report to Congress
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
The "2008 Title V Report to Congress" marks a departure from the past. Before 2008, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) reported solely on the Community Prevention Grants program in its "Title V Report to Congress." This year, OJJDP is reporting on the four delinquency prevention programs that were funded under Title V--the Community Prevention Grants program, the Tribal Youth Program (TYP), the Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) program, and the Gang Resistance Education And Training (G.R.E.A.T.) program. This report summarizes many accomplishments that OJJDP and its state and local partners achieved through the combined Title V prevention program efforts during fiscal year 2008. OJJDP requires grant recipients to submit data on how their programs are performing to help us better determine how well they are meeting their goals. This report presents the results and analyses of the performance measurement data for the three Title V programs that OJJDP administers. This report also includes examples of the creative types of programs that local jurisdictions have supported through their Title V funding along with OJJDP's training and technical assistance efforts during the reporting period. The "2008 Title V Report to Congress" provides a snapshot of OJJDP's and BJA's efforts under Title V to reduce the risk factors associated with delinquency and to enhance the protective factors that support healthy personal and social development in young people. As research increases the understanding of the causes and correlates of juvenile delinquency, including how risk and protective factors affect a youth's likelihood to offend, OJJDP will continue to enhance the Title V programs, build on the existing momentum in juvenile delinquency reduction, and continue preparing the nation's youth for healthy and productive futures.
