Criminal and Juvenile Justice Intervention Grants

Due Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. 

The 2017 Minnesota Justice Assistance Grants strategic planning process identified criminal and juvenile justice intervention for adults and juveniles as a public safety funding priority. Additionally, top concerns include drug and alcohol abuse as well as addressing mental health issues, including co-occurring issues.

An intervention is a combination of program elements or strategies designed to produce behavior changes or increase safety among individuals or an entire population. Interventions may be implemented in different settings including communities, schools, corrections, detention centers, courts, or in the home. Interventions implemented in multiple settings and using multiple strategies may be the most effective because of the potential to reach a larger number of people in a variety of ways.

Priority will be given to projects based on promising strategies and/or projects that are research-based.
