The Johnson County Board of Supervisors is accepting applications for Juvenile Justice and Youth Development (JJYD) programming for the FY23 – FY25 grant cycle. Up to $400,000 will be awarded to non-profit organizations providing evidence-based, trauma-informed, culturally-responsive youth development and delinquency prevention services to Johnson County youth 10-16 years of age.

JJYD programs will increase opportunities for positive youth development during out-of-school time, build protective factors in at-risk youth, and prevent or reduce the need for intensive intervention services and out-of-home placement. Successful bidders will receive an annual contract to begin Friday, July 1, 2022, with the option of two additional renewals, contingent on the availability of funding and successful progress toward scope of services and performance measures.

The application link and instructions can be found at www.johnsoncountyiowa.gov/socialservices under RFPs and Applications or www.johnsoncountyiowa.gov  under Bids, Proposals, and RFPs.
