Juvenile Crime Prevention Council accepting proposals for funding

Posted

The Harnett County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC) is now accepting proposals for fiscal year 2021-22. The JCPC’s mission is to address the gaps in youth service by promoting prevention, intervention, treatment and aftercare strategies which strengthen families and community safety.

Harnett County JCPC currently has an allocation of funds from the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, Division of Adult Corrections & Juvenile Justice, Juvenile Community Programs section in the amount of $41,500. These funds are to serve delinquent youth and youth most at risk to become delinquent.

If you have a program serving youth, or are currently seeking funding to start a program to help serve youth, the Harnett County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council will be accepting proposals for the funding period of July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022 from local government agencies and private non-profits with 501-c-3 status. The JCPC will consider proposals for the following needed programs:

  • Restitution or community service
  • Teen court or restorative justice
  • Vocational or independent living skills
  • Individual or family mentoring services
  • Sex offender treatment
  • Respite or crisis services
  • Clinical assessments
  • Tutoring or academic enhancement

Such programs will serve delinquent and at-risk youth for the state fiscal year 2021-22 beginning on or after July 1, 2021. The use of Department of Public Safety funds in Harnett County does require a 10% local match.
