Agency Solicitation:

The Family-Based Alternative Sentencing Program seeks to build the capacity of states, communities, state and local courts, units of local government, and federally recognized Tribal governments to implement new, or enhance existing, alternative sentencing programs for parents in the criminal justice system to improve child, parent, and family outcomes.


Additional Notes:

This program will provide funding to support states and communities as they implement new, or enhance existing, community-based alternative sentencing programs that provide culturally competent, community-based supports to strengthen the emotional, physical, and social well-being for children and families. OJJDP will support potential models that divert justice-involved parents/primary caregivers whom a court has found guilty of a crime from the prison system, promote the unification of families, and prevent children from entering the foster care and/or juvenile justice systems.
