The Harnett County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC) is now accepting proposals for fiscal year 2020-2021. 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 anticipates 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 $320,045. 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 (JCPC) will be accepting proposals for the funding period of July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021 from local government agencies and private non-profits with 501-c-3 status for the following services.

Such programs will serve delinquent and at-risk youth for the state fiscal year 2020-2021 beginning on, or after, July 1, 2020. The use of DPS funds in Harnett County does require a 10% local match. For more information, contact Mrs. Wendy Butcher at firstname.lastname@example.org or (910) 814-6692. The deadline to submit a proposal is March 7, 2020.
The JCPC Council is comprised of various private and State agencies. Meetings are held monthly at the Harnett County Cooperative Extension office, and the public is welcome to attend.
