A Request for Grant Application (RFGA) Solicitation concerning the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Title II Formula Grant Program, RFGA No. J2-CSG-18-100118-00 has been released and is now available on the State of Arizona’s eCivis grant management system at Access to solicitation documents requires an eCivis account creation and log-in registration, free of charge to users.

The following Arizona entities are eligible to apply:

  • Native American Tribal Communities that perform law enforcement activities.
  • Local units of government or combinations thereof (i.e. cities, counties, cities + counties, counties + counties, cities + cities, cities + non-profits, counties + non-profits, etc).
  • Non-profit agencies may serve as applicants and fiscal agents if a local unit of government has declined to apply for and administer the proposed contract directly in coordination with the non-profit agency. Local units of government, in declining to be the lead fiscal agency, may identify the non-profit agency as the applicant and fiscal agent. However, official documentation from the declining agency is required and must be attached to the application. A letter of support from a local government agency serving the area targeted for services is sufficient documentation.

A local unit of government is defined as: county, city, township, town, borough, parish, village or other general purpose political subdivision of a state. Educational school systems and law enforcement agencies do not meet this definition as defined by OJJDP and, therefore, must apply through their respective local unit of government. In addition, a local unit of government may serve as a fiscal agent for more than one applicant.

The types of projects available for funding are:

  • Delinquency Prevention
  • Programs that implement trauma-informed juvenile delinquency prevention by supporting evidence-based or evidence-informed interventions that meet the needs of youth through collaboration with schools and other systems that offer youth services.
