Title V

Title V of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974 provides for Community Prevention Grants Programs. This program is dedicated to delinquency prevention efforts initiated by a community-based planning process focused on reducing risks and enhancing protective factors to prevent youth from entering the juvenile justice system. It is the only federal funding source solely dedicated to delinquency prevention. Funds must be for at-risk juveniles to "prevent" them from entering the juvenile justice system or "early intervention" programs for juveniles with first-time and non-serious offenses to keep them out of the juvenile justice system.

Eligible recipients are units of local government in compliance with the core requirements of JJDP Act; have a 15 to 21 member community coalition board, provide a 3-year comprehensive community delinquency prevention plan, and provide a 50-percent match ( cash or in-kind). Communities are required to form community coalition boards because a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach increases the efficacy of prevention and reduces duplication of services. The match requirement is designed to promote collaboration between communities in developing resources, sharing information, and obtaining additional funding to sustain projects over the long term. The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) assigned federal standard program areas for funding, which can be found at

  • Child Abuse and Neglect Programs
  • Children of Incarcerated Parents
  • Delinquency Prevention
  • Disproportionate Minority Contact
  • Diversion
  • Gangs
  • Gender-specific Services
  • Gun Programs
  • Hate Crimes
  • Job Training
  • Mental Health Services
  • Mentoring
  • Native American Programs
  • Restitution/Community Services
  • Rural Area Juvenile Programs
  • School Programs
  • Substance Abuse
  • Youth Courts

Applicants should demonstrate ability in developing data-driven prevention plans, employing evidence-based prevention strategies, and conducting program evaluations to determine impact and effectives. To assist communities in locating evidence-based programs, OJJDP has developed the Model Programs Guide and Database (MPG), which contains information on evidence-based prevention and intervention programs. The MPG is intended as a user friendly, "one-stop shop" resource for potential applicants to develop and propose evidence-based approaches to meet their particular needs.
