Juvenile Crime Prevention Council Accepting Proposals for Youth Program Funding

The Harnett County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC) is now accepting proposals for fiscal year 2021-2022.  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 JCPC currently has an allocation of funds from the North Carolina Department of Public Safety (DPS), Division of Adult Corrections & Juvenile Justice, Juvenile Community Programs section in the amount of $41,500.  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 will be accepting proposals for the funding period of July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022 from local government agencies and private non-profits with 501-c-3 status. The JCPC will consider proposals for the following needed programs:

  • Restitution/Community Service
  • Teen Court/Restorative Justice
  • Vocational/Independent Living Skills
  • Individual/Family/Mentoring Services
  • Sex Offender Treatment
  • Respite/Crisis Services
  • Clinical Assessments
  • Tutoring/Academic Enhancement

Such programs will serve delinquent and at-risk youth for the state fiscal year 2021-2022 beginning on, or after, July 1, 2021. The use of DPS funds in Harnett County does require a 10% local match.
