The Guilford County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC) seek proposals for community-based programs targeting delinquent or gang involved youth (ages 10-17), or those at risk of juvenile court involvement. The JCPC anticipates funds from the NC Department of Public Safety in the amount of $987,774 to fund these programs through a selective evaluation process. Such programs will serve delinquent and at-risk youth for the state fiscal year 2018-2019 beginning on, or after, July 1, 2018.

- The NC General Statute (143B-851b) states “Juvenile Crime Prevention Councils shall ensure that appropriate intermediate dispositional options are available and shall prioritize funding of intermediate and community level dispositional options.” Proposals that ensure appropriate community-based intermediate dispositions, per legislative mandate, will receive priority.
