The Johnson County Board of Supervisors is accepting applications for Juvenile Justice and Youth Development (JJYD) programming for the FY24 – FY25 grant cycle. Up to $96,000 of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds 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 youth involvement in the juvenile justice system. Successful bidders will receive an annual contract to begin Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2023, with the option of one additional renewal, contingent on the availability of funding and successful progress toward scope of services and performance measures.
Applications are due by 4 p.m., Friday, June 30. For more information, contact Laurie Nash, Youth & Family Services Manager, [email protected].
