OJJDP Mentoring Funding Opportunities

Practitioner-Researcher Partnership Mentoring Children of Incarcerated Parents Demonstration Program

All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on May 27, 2014.
Due Date: 5/27/2014
This demonstration program will support a practitioner-researcher partnership to develop and evaluate new mentoring practices to serve the needs of youth whose parents are incarcerated. Incarcerated parents and their children are a heterogeneous group, and associations between parental incarceration and developmental outcomes are complicated. However, research has shown that having an incarcerated parent can present individual and environmental risks for the child and increase the likelihood of negative outcomes. While mentoring has been shown to be an effective intervention for youth, more research is needed to understand how the unique needs of youth who have incarcerated parents are best supported through mentoring.


High-Risk Youth Mentoring Research

The deadline to apply for funding under this announcement is 11:59 p.m. eastern time on May 12, 2014.
Due Date: 5/12/2014
Mentoring has been shown to be an effective intervention for youth; however, more research is needed to understand how youth at high risk for delinquency are best supported through mentoring. The High-Risk Youth Mentoring Research program will support research and evaluations to further examine how certain characteristics, components, and practices of mentoring programs can best support youth who are at particularly high risk for delinquency.
