Delinquency Prevention and Young Offenders Intervention Pilot Grant Program

#FFFFFF

Delinquency Prevention and Young Offenders Intervention (DPI) Pilot Grant Program is a funding opportunity offered through the Office of Adult and Juvenile Assistance (OAJJA).

The DPI Pilot Grant Program is a program funded by the State of Colorado. DPI is designed to award grants to eligible recipients for collaborative projects to reduce violence, crime, and delinquency among youth.

The Colorado general assembly determined that a strategy to enhance delinquency prevention efforts and provide early intervention responses to those who have entered or are at risk of entering the juvenile justice system is necessary to prevent youth delinquency, reduce the impact on victims of youth crimes, and ensure that all young people in Colorado have an equal opportunity to prosper.  Therefore, the Delinquency Prevention and Young Offender Intervention Pilot Grant Program was established.  Resource: HB22-1003
