Agency-specific Content for the Notice of Funding Opportunity

  1. Program Description
    The intent of the Redeploy Illinois (RI) program is to grant funds to a county that will establish a continuum of local, community-based sanctions and treatment alternatives for juvenile offenders who would otherwise be incarcerated if those local services and sanctions were not available, as required by 730 ILCS 110/16.1. (See Appendix A
    Redeploy Eligible youth include any youth under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court, not currently in IDJJ, that is facing a possible commitment to IDJJ. In exchange for these program funds, the provider agrees to reduce the number of Redeploy Illinois eligible commitments from that county by a minimum of 25% compared to the agreed upon baseline. Redeploy eligible commitments, for purposes of determining baselines and measuring reduction, exclude minors sentenced based upon a finding of guilt of first-degree murder or an offense which is a Class X forcible felony as defined in the Criminal Code of 1961.
    The RI sites will assist the Department in identifying effective models to reduce commitments and guide replication efforts in other parts of the state. These funds will be used to help sites fill the gaps in the existing continuum of programs and services for delinquent youth, allowing counties to cost effectively serve youth locally and reduce their reliance on IDJJ.
    Prior research provides solid evidence that community-based services for delinquent youth are more effective and less expensive than a sentence to secure confinement for a certain profile of youth offenders who are deemed likely to benefit from such services, since the cost of community-based programs is lower than the cost of incarceration.
    Through Redeploy Illinois, counties will link each youth to a wide array of needed services and supports within his or her home community, as indicated through an individualized needs assessment. Services will be provided in the least restrictive manner possible, and include, but are not limited to, case management, court advocacy, education assistance, individual, family and/or group counseling, and crisis intervention.
    Counties interested in becoming a full Redeploy Illinois program site must first participate in and complete the Redeploy Illinois Planning Grant process (Phase 1). The Redeploy Illinois Planning Grant is intended to allow counties to explore the possibility of becoming a full Redeploy Illinois Program site (Phase 2). Completing this planning process will enhance the county's ability to more effectively serve juveniles. The planning grant is intended to help the counties understand the initiative, its expectations, how it could positively impact their community and youth, and get a feel for their ability to meet the 25% commitment reduction requirement. This is important because this reduction requirement has been the most cited reason for counties not applying to be a Redeploy Illinois site because failure to meet this requirement may, after failed attempts at corrective action, result in a financial penalty that must be paid by the county for every youth in excess of the requirement. Upon completion/submission of the Planning Grant Final Report, the Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board (RIOB) will invite those interested and eligible counties to submit a full Redeploy Program Site application for funding consideration (Phase 2).
     
    For counties not eligible for the Redeploy Illinois Planning Grant / Program Site grant, the Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board also operates a Redeploy Focused Program. This program allows individual counties, not eligible for a full program site grant, to request Redeploy Illinois services for an individual youth. More information can be found about the Redeploy Focused program at: http://www.redeployillinois.org/redeploy-illinois-focused-program
    This funding notice will provide the instruction necessary for counties interested in exploring and potentially becoming a Redeploy Illinois program site.
    1. Phase 1 Planning Grant Deliverables
      1. The Provider will explore the possibility of Redeploy Illinois in the identified county. This will include, among other things, an analysis of:
        1. Juvenile Justice related data
        2. Current services offered
        3. Services needed
        4. Strategies for service delivery
        5. Potential eligible populations
        6. Local governance of juvenile justice issues
        7. Data collection and analysis capabilities
        8. Estimated costs involving alternatives for delinquent youth
        9. The system's readiness for such a program
      2. Planning grant recipients will:
        1. Participate in a minimum of one (1) site visits to existing Redeploy Illinois programs
        2. Participate in (3) Department arranged meetings
        3. Conduct an in-depth analysis of the case files of each participant committed from the county for the past 3 calendar years (2016, 2017, 2018) or newer if available.
        4. Submit a final detailed planning grant budget in the DHS CSA system within 7 business days of the issuance of the Notice of State Grant Award (NOSA).
        5. Submit a final report in the format provided by the Department (see Appendix F). This report will detail the work of the county, the activities undertaken, and the compiled results of the Planning
          grant process. This report will be due the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) upon completion of the Planning Grant process - due date will vary.
        6. Provide monthly expenditure documentation reports in the format provided by the department. This report will be due to Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) on or before the 30th of each month for the preceding month documenting all expenditures through the end of the month.
        7. Provide monthly programmatic narrative reports in the format provided by the department. This report will be due to Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) on or before the 30th of each month for the preceding month documenting activities and progress of the planning grant.
          NOTE: Information provided to the Department of Human Services may be shared with the Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board and may be included in the annual report to the Governor and General Assembly, or any other publication deemed appropriate by the Board.
    2. Phase 2 Program Site Deliverables
      1. The county will establish and maintain a continuum of local, community-based sanctions and treatment alternatives for juvenile offenders who would otherwise be incarcerated if those local services and sanctions were not available, as required by 730 ILCS 110/16.1. Minors determined guilty of murder or a Class X forcible felony are eligible for services, however they are excluded from the baseline & penalty calculations. 
      2. The county will commit to reducing the number of Redeploy Illinois eligible commitments from that county by a minimum of 25% compared to the agreed upon baseline. 
      3. The funds shall be used by the county for purposes of serving, in community-based settings, youth involved in the juvenile justice system through the creation of evidence-based community programs that maintain public safety and promote positive outcomes for youth. The RI sites will assist the Department in identifying effective models to reduce commitments and guide replication efforts in other parts of the state.
      4. The county will implement policies that will include: 1) treating juveniles in the least restrictive manner while maintaining safety; 2) affirming local responsibility for services in the community; and 3) defining the role of the state and local jurisdictions in the care of youth in the justice system.
      5. The county will develop and manage a continuum of services and sanctions from least restrictive to most restrictive designed to intervene with youth involved with the juvenile justice system. The services may be provided directly by the provider or subcontracted out to other community organizations. Redeploy Illinois projects will use the graduated sanctions model as described by OJJDP. The graduated sanctions model is based upon the premise that each time a youth commits a crime there should be quick consequences to their behavior. As the seriousness or frequency of the crime increases then the consequences should also be more severe.
      6. The programs and services provided shall be culturally competent and research or evidenced based (EBP) as proven or promising practices. In addition, non-EBP services can be provided to supplement EBP services. 
      7. Programs and services provided shall be consistent with the Illinois Juvenile Court Act of 1987 and with the following purposes and policies: 1) The juvenile justice system should protect the community, 2) impose accountability to victims and communities for violations of law, and 3) equip juvenile offenders with competencies to live responsibly and productively.
      8. The county will implement Balanced and Restorative Justice Strategies. Services will address one of the three components of Balanced and Restorative Justice: 1) accountability to the victim, 2) developing competencies in the youth, 3) community safety.
      9. The role of local government should be to oversee the provision of Redeploy services while insuring community safety. There should be local responsibility and authority for planning, organizing, and coordinating service resources in the community. 
      10. Primary Population: The Redeploy program must be designed to target those youth who would otherwise be committed to IDJJ were it not for the Redeploy Illinois program and those youth at highest-risk for commitment to IDJJ.
      11. Each county may determine the specific primary population of juveniles it will serve through its Redeploy Illinois project, presuming they meet the Redeploy eligibility criteria: youth under the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Court at risk of IDJJ commitment, and a score of high to medium risk on YASI. Priority populations must be youth meeting this eligibility criterion who are facing commitment to IDJJ. 
      12. Statewide data and data from existing sites indicate that there are three populations of juveniles most likely to benefit from and commonly targeted for Redeploy services. These are:
        1. Juveniles committed as court evaluations or bring back orders;
        2. Nonviolent offenders; and
        3. Juveniles dually involved with the juvenile justice system and DCFS
      13. Racial and Ethnic Disparities (RED): The Illinois Department of Human Services and Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board are committed to reducing the racial and ethnic disparities in the juvenile justice system. It is expected that Redeploy Illinois will further this goal. As counties develop and manage their programs, it will be critical to understand the impact it will have on disproportionate minority contact. This impact must be monitored. In the event that the area to be served and the target population demonstrate the presence of gender, ethnic and/or racial disparity, the Annual plan will describe the program's plan to address and reduce the disparity. This could include the addition of programming that has been informed by research that addresses the unique aspects of gender, race, and/or ethnicity as associated with delinquency behavior.
      14. Impact on Secure Detention: Redeploy Illinois services are designed to divert youth from the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice (IDJJ) without increasing commitments to detention. Reducing reliance on the Department of Juvenile Justice should not directly increase the use of local secure detention placements. It is understood that Illinois currently has excess detention bed capacity. Simply not committing a juvenile to the Department of Juvenile Justice and instead placing him/her in local secure detention is not an acceptable response. Each year, counties will have to demonstrate that the juveniles involved with Redeploy Illinois did not experience excessive secure detention stays. For purposes of this initiative, "excessive secure detention days" will be defined as more than 50% of the average length of stay in secure detention or IDJJ. For example, if current local practices result in juveniles spending 200 days, on average, in IDJJ then secure detention stays greater than 100 days for juveniles involved with the Redeploy Illinois program is considered excessive. 
      15. YASI & Case Planning: Youth referred to the Redeploy program will receive a Youth Assessment and Screening Instrument (YASI). Each enrolled youth will have an initial YASI (conducted upon referral/enrollment). A closing YASI Reassessment will also be completed for each youth upon their exit of the Redeploy Illinois program.
      16. Each youth enrolled into the Redeploy program will have an individualized case plan developed that is based on the YASI and any additional completed assessments. The services provided to each juvenile shall be individualized and based upon assessed need. 
      17. Staff administering the YASI are required to participate in YASI training. These trainings will be made available by IDHS. 
      18. Background Checks: Background checks are required for all program staff and volunteers who have the potential for contact with youth under 18. These background checks must be completed in advance of individuals working directly with youth. Such individuals will authorize such checks in writing and submit to fingerprinting when required. The agency shall retain the signed form authorizing the background check. All background check information, including the signed authorizing forms shall be maintained separately in a confidential file, apart from the employee's personnel records. Funded programs will be required to have a written protocol in place detailing the requirement for background checks; evidence of their completion; the protocol for reviewing and making determinations regarding results; etc. In no case shall a Person who has been indicated as the perpetrator of any of the child abuse/neglect allegations identified in 89 Ill. Adm. Code Section 385.50(a) be deemed fit for service that allows access to children.
      19. Logic Model: The Redeploy Illinois Logic Model (Appendix B) represents a logical framework that will be used by the Department and the RIOB to evaluate the effectiveness of the identified program model. The Logic Model depicts the intended outcomes expected as a direct result of the Provider successfully implementing the Strategies and associated Activities. Funded, providers will be held accountable for implementing the identified program Strategies. These will be measured and verified through a combination of 1) desk audits; 2) on-site reviews; and through program performance measures (Exhibits E and F). 
      20. Data Collection & Reporting: Each site will be required to collect and report data to measure the following:
        1. Number of juveniles committed to DJJ by age, gender, race, ethnicity, offense, and length of stay.
        2. Number of youth served, and number of juveniles committed to DJJ with a brief narrative of past efforts with each juvenile (submitted monthly with expenditure data).
        3. Impact on Detention - new admissions, length of stay, and average daily population of secure detention for the total juvenile population as well as the juveniles involved with Redeploy Illinois.
        4. Recidivism - positive outcome data of juveniles in the Redeploy Illinois program while actively involved in the program, six months after discharge from the program and twelve months after discharge. (Examples: school attendance/education level, diploma/GED, employment, and positive family relationships etc.).
        5. Recidivism - negative system outcome data of juveniles in the Redeploy Illinois program while actively involved in the program, six months after discharge from the program and twelve months after discharge. (Examples: new petitions or information filings, new incidents, commitments etc.).
        6. Impact on the disproportional use of secure confinement of minority youth in the system (detention, DJJ and other) and other points in the system targeted.
        7. Use of community-based alternatives.
        8. Number of Redeploy Illinois youth successfully completing probation requirements, during or after completion of Redeploy.
        9. Initial and Closing YASI data on Redeploy Illinois youth to assess the change in Dynamic Risk and Dynamic Protective Factors.
        10. Education and Employment Status: Data including, but not limited to, number receiving services: Types of services and outcomes. Refer to Reporting Requirements for additional instructions.
      21. Meeting Attendance: Providers must budget for and plan to attend a minimum of two statewide Redeploy Illinois meetings per year in the central part of the state. 
      22. Use of Funds: Funds will be used to support the Annual Plan and Budget approved by DHS that is intended to meet the goals of Redeploy Illinois. Redeploy Illinois funds may not be used for capital expenditures, renovations or remodeling, or personnel costs for probation. In addition, Redeploy Illinois funds shall not be used to duplicate existing services and programs or supplant existing county funded programs.
      23. Program Participant Eligibility: Any youth under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court, not currently in IDJJ, that is facing a possible commitment to IDJJ. Minors determined guilty of murder or a Class X forcible felony as defined in the Criminal Code of 1961are eligible for services, however they are excluded from the baseline & penalty calculations. 
      24. Program Strategies: Each Redeploy site is responsible for implementing the following strategies within their county:
        1. Implement programming that diverts Redeploy eligible youth from IDJJ commitments.
        2. Implement policies that ensure local responsibility and authority for planning, organizing, and coordinating service resources in the community.
        3. Put in place a continuum of local, community-based graduated sanctions and treatment alternatives.
        4. Ensure appropriate risk and needs assessments are utilized.
        5. Develop, implement and complete individualized case plans based on identified needs from appropriate assessments.
        6. Provide community-based services to youth in the least restrictive setting possible.
        7. Implement programming that is research or evidence-based as proven or promising.
        8. Implement non-traditional services and programs that supplement EBP.
        9. Offender accountability through restorative justice practices that ensure offenders understand how their actions have affected others and take responsibility for their actions.

      26. Each Redeploy Illinois site, when asked, must participate in a program evaluation as prescribed by the Department. The program site may be required to meet with evaluators regularly, submit data and assist the evaluators in having access to juveniles and their families for follow-up surveys. 
      27. Penalties: Redeploy Illinois programs have agreed to reduce their juvenile commitments to IDJJ by 25% (or other approved percentage as authorized in the Public Act). This reduction is figured over a full 12 consecutive month time-period. This project period will match either the state fiscal year or a calendar year and will be agreed upon by the sites as part of their application/annual plan. The baseline is pre-determined and will be set for future years of Redeploy implementation. This baseline figure is calculated by averaging the number of Redeploy eligible commitments over a 3-year period. The data used to calculate these rates is data provided by the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice.
        The Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board, in accordance with the Public Act, is required to impose a penalty for each youth committed to IDJJ that exceeds the approved reduction requirement of the sites baseline number. Commitments will be grouped into two types: 1.) court evaluations and bring back orders (pre-defined end/return date) and 2.) full commitments (no pre-determined end/return date). The maximum penalty for each court evaluation/bring back order may not exceed $2,000 for each commitment. The maximum penalty for each full commitment may not exceed $4,000. No penalty may be imposed on any site unless they exceed the approved reduction requirement of their baseline for the corresponding 12 consecutive month project period. Each excess commitment will be reviewed to ascertain commitment type. This forms the basis upon which any penalty may be calculated. The data used to calculate commitments for a given project period will be provided by the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice.
        Any Redeploy program found to have exceeded their reduction requirement will be subject to a Corrective Action Plan. The Redeploy Illinois Oversight Board will work with the program site to provide specific requirements and recommendations as part of a corrective action plan process. Penalties will not be imposed on a program site provided that they fully and successfully comply with the Board approved corrective action plan requirements and recommendations. Reduced penalties may be imposed for those sites that fully comply with the corrective action requirements and recommendations but fail to achieve the intended results. Full penalties may be imposed for those sites that do not comply with the corrective action process or for those that choose to accept the penalty in lieu of corrective action and terminate involvement in the program. The Redeploy Oversight Board will not impose a penalty upon any site for exceeding their reduction requirement until after an opportunity to address the issue(s) has been afforded through a corrective action plan process.
      28. Provider must demonstrate an ongoing commitment to develop trauma informed capacity within the organization with a goal of achieving Trauma Informed Agency Status as recognized through the CBAT-O Assessment tool. Provider will participate in the CBAT-O Trauma Assessment process. Provider will engage in capacity building activities designed to obtain or maintain Trauma Informed status.

Please refer to Section C. Eligibility Information & Grant Funding Requirements for additional information and detail regarding SAM.
    5. Pre-Award Requirements
      The pre-award process includes a financial and administrative risk assessment utilizing an Internal Controls Questionnaire (ICQ) and a Programmatic Risk Assessment (PRA). The PRA must be completed for each separate grant for which an applicant intends to apply every year. The Department may NOT issue a Notice of Award or a Grant Agreement to any applicant that does not have a submitted and approved FY20 ICQ and a submitted and complete FY20 PRA for the Redeploy Illinois program. While these are NOT required prior to submitting the application, they are required prior to the Department issuing an award.
      Applicants that have not completed an FY20 ICQ and/or an FY20 PRA at the time of application will be contacted by the Department to complete these Pre-Award requirements.
      These grantee pre-award requirements are mandated by Federal Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200) and the Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA). Grantees must complete these requirements prior to receiving a grant award from the State of Illinois.
    6. Mandatory Requirements of Applicant
      The Mandatory Requirements are essential items that must be met by the Applicant. If any Mandatory Requirement is not met, the responding Applicant's entire proposal will not be considered. If all responding applicants fail to meet a particular mandatory requirement, that mandatory requirement may, at the sole discretion of the State, be removed from the Mandatory Requirements so the evaluation process may continue. However, this does not obligate DHS to make an award to any applicant that fails to meet all mandatory requirements.

    8. Grant funds - Use Requirements
      All applicants will use grant funds according to the guidelines, conditions and parameters set forth in this funding notice and in compliance with federal statutes, regulations and the terms and conditions of any applicable federal awards.
      Please refer to 2 CFR 200 - Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, PART 200 Subpart E - Cost Principles to determine the appropriateness of costs.
      1. Allowable costs:
        Allowable costs are those that are necessary and reasonable based on the activity(ies) contained in the Scope of Work, are justified in the Budget Narrative, and are allowable under Subpart E of 2 CFR 200. Funding allocated under these grants is intended to provide direct services to youth. It is expected that administrative costs, both direct and indirect, will represent a small portion of the overall program budget. Any budget deemed to include inappropriate or excessive administrative costs will not be approved. Program budgets and narratives must detail how all proposed expenditures are necessary for program implementation.
      2. Unallowable costs:
        Please refer to 2 CFR 200 - Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, PART 200 Subpart E - Cost Principles to determine the appropriateness of costs. In addition, and specific to this grant, the following costs will be unallowable without specific prior written approval from DHS:
        1. Personnel costs for Probation are prohibited under the Redeploy Illinois Public Act.
        2. Entertainment costs, except where specific costs that might otherwise be considered entertainment have a programmatic purpose and are authorized in the approved budget (2 CFR 200.438)
        3. Capital expenditures for general purpose equipment, including any vehicle regardless of cost, buildings, and land (2 CFR 200.439)
        4. Capital expenditures for improvements to land, buildings, or equipment which materially increase their value or useful life (2 CFR 200.439)
        5. Food, and other goods or services for personal use of the grantee's employees, contractors, or consultants of the grantee unless authorized as per diem under the State of Illinois Governor's Travel Control Board (2 CFR 200.445).
        6. Deposits for items, services, or space
      3. Limitation of Use of Award funds for Employee Compensation: With respect to any award over $250,000, recipients may not use federal funds to pay total cash compensation to any employee that exceeds 110% of the maximum annual salary payable to a member of the Federal Government's Senior Executive Service (SES) at an agency with a Certified SES Performance Appraisal System for that year. A salary table is available at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management website https://www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/pay-leave/salaries-wages/salary-tables/pdf/2017/ES.pdf
      4. Indirect cost requirements
        In order to charge indirect costs to this grant, the applicant organization must have a Federal or State annually negotiated indirect cost rate agreement (NICRA) or must elect to use the De Minimis Rate. Every organization that receives an FY2020 state award must make an indirect cost rate proposal or election in the Crowe Activity Review System (CARS), including organizations that are choosing not to claim payment for indirect costs. CARS URL: https://solutions.crowehorwath.com/CARS/StateofIllinoisGOMB/Login.aspx 
        Indirect Cost Rate Election:
        1. Federally Negotiated Rate. Organizations that receive direct federal funding may have an indirect cost rate that was negotiated with the Federal Cognizant Agency. Illinois will accept the federally negotiated rate. The organization must provide a copy of the federal NICRA with Attachment 1.
        2. State Negotiated Rate. The organization must negotiate an indirect cost rate with the State of Illinois by completing an indirect cost rate proposal in the CARS system if they do not have Federally Negotiated Rate or elect to use the De Minimis Rate.
        3. De Minimis Rate. An organization that has never received a Federal or State Negotiated Rate may elect a de Minimis rate of 10% of modified total direct cost (MTDC). Once established, the de Minimis rate may be used indefinitely. The State of Illinois must verify the calculation of the MTDC annually in order to accept the de Minimis rate. If programs elect to use the De Minimis rate, it is critical that program budgets accurately calculate the MTDC base. Please see the regulation below and note the exclusions to MTDC.

          2 CFR § 200.68 Modified Total Direct Cost (MTDC).
          MTDC means all direct salaries and wages, applicable fringe benefits, materials and supplies, services, travel, and subawards and subcontracts up to the first $25,000 of each subaward or subcontract (regardless of the period of performance of the subawards and subcontracts under the award). MTDC excludes equipment, capital expenditures, charges for patient care, rental costs, tuition remission, scholarships and fellowships, participant support costs and the portion of each subaward and subcontract in excess of $25,000. Other items may only be excluded when necessary to avoid a serious inequity in the distribution of indirect costs, and with the approval of the cognizant agency for indirect costs.
      5. "No Rate": Grantees have discretion not to claim payment for indirect costs. Grantees that elect not to claim indirect costs cannot be reimbursed for indirect costs. The organization must record an election of "No Indirect Costs" into CARS.
        Crowe Activity Review System (CARS)
        CARS will allow your organization to document your already established federally approved indirect cost rate, complete an indirect cost rate proposal (see State Negotiated Rate above), elect to charge the De Minimis rate (10%) of modified total direct costs (MTDC), or select that no reimbursement of indirect costs will be requested. Submission requirements are located on page 2 of the Uniform Budget Template as well as 2 CFR 200 Appendices IV, V & VII.
        1. Organizations which have not previously made an indirect cost rate election must submit an election (and indirect cost rate proposal, if necessary) immediately and no later than 3 months after receiving an award notification or invitation to the CARS system.
        2. Organizations that have previously established an indirect cost rate election must submit a new indirect cost rate election immediately and no later than 6 months after the close of their organization's fiscal year.
        3. Every organization must make an indirect cost rate election in CARS even if the organization is choosing De Minimis Rate or "no rate". Organizations that do not make an election or submission inside the CARS system within the required timeframes will not be allowed to claim indirect cost reimbursement.
        4. For more information, see https://www.illinois.gov/sites/GATA/Pages/default.aspx.
      6. Administrative costs
        It is expected that administrative costs, both direct and indirect, will represent a small portion of the overall program budget. Program budgets and narratives will detail how all proposed expenditures are directly necessary for program implementation and will distinguish between Indirect/Direct Administrative and Direct Program expenses. Any budget deemed to include inappropriate or excessive administrative costs will not be approved. At no time may the approved NICRA be exceeded under this agreement. Documentation will be required to verify the approved NICRA.
      7. Simplified Acquisition Threshold
        Potential grantees under this funding announcement may receive an award in excess of the Simplified Acquisition Threshold, currently $250,000 (Refer to 2CFR200 Section 200.88). Therefore, the grantee must be aware of the following regarding the Simplified Acquisition Threshold as it will be applicable to any qualifying sub award:
        • That the grantee agency, prior to making a sub-award with a total amount of funds greater than the simplified acquisition threshold, is required to review and consider any information about the applicant that is in the designated integrity and performance system accessible through SAM (currently FAPIIS) (see 41 U.S.C. 2313);
        • That an applicant, at its option, may review information in the designated integrity and performance systems accessible through SAM and comment on any information about itself that the awarding agency previously entered and is currently in the designated integrity and performance system accessible through SAM;
        • That the awarding agency will consider any comments by the applicant, in addition to the other information in the designated integrity and performance system, in making a judgment about the applicant's integrity, business ethics, and record of performance under awards when completing the review of risk posed by applicants as described in §200.205 awarding agency review of risk posed by applicants.
    9. Additional Requirements
      1. Service Areas: Proposed services areas must include one full county with the exception of Cook County which must include one or more distinct geographic areas as provided for in the Redeploy statute (Refer to Appendix A) and must meet the minimum commitment requirement.
      2. Baselines & Project Periods: Project periods and baselines will be determined as part of the Phase 2 full site application and grant process and will be based on official IDJJ Redeploy eligible commitment data for the previous 3-year period. (Refer to Appendix D for the most recent available data). Note: It is likely that more current IDJJ data will be available and utilized to determine full site eligibility. These data are anticipated in two to three months and will be shared with successful Planning Grant applicants.
      3. Phase 2 Applicants must commit to becoming trauma-informed and demonstrate an ongoing commitment to developing/maintaining trauma informed agency status/capacity within the organization. Training and technical assistance will be made available to successful applicants to achieve/maintain this status.

Program Evaluation Reporting Requirements: Phase 2 Providers will be required to participate in evaluation efforts as directed by the Department and/or its subcontractor(s) and collect and report data accordingly. All Providers are required to utilize the Department's eCornerstone web-based reporting system for all youth served. Providers will be required to report quarterly and annually regarding program performance measures and outcomes. Providers will be required to participate in a Department directed Performance and Standards Assessment review. Additional data and information may be requested throughout the year as determined by the Department
      5. Training and Technical Assistance: Programs must agree to receive consultation technical assistance from authorized representatives of the Department. The program and collaborating partners will be required to be in attendance at site visits. Programs will be required to attend regular meetings and training as provided by the Department or a subcontractor of the Department and should budget accordingly.
      6. Sectarian Issue: Provider organizations may not expend federal or state funds for sectarian instruction, worship, prayer or to proselytize. If the Provider organization is a faith-based or a religious organization that offers such activities, these activities shall be voluntary for the individuals receiving services and offered separately from the program.
      7. Background Checks: Background checks are required for all program staff and volunteers who have the potential for contact with youth under 18. These background checks must be completed in advance of individuals working directly with youth. Such individuals will authorize such checks in writing and submit to fingerprinting when required. The agency shall retain the signed form authorizing the background check. All background check information, including the signed authorizing forms shall be maintained separately in a confidential file, apart from the employee's personnel records. Funded programs will be required to have a written protocol in place detailing the requirement for background checks; evidence of their completion; the protocol for reviewing and making determinations regarding results; etc. In no case shall a Person who has been indicated as the perpetrator of any of the child abuse/neglect allegations identified in 89 Ill. Adm. Code Section 385.50(a) be deemed fit for service that allows access to children.
      8. Child Abuse/Neglect Reporting Mandate: Per the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act (ANCRA, 325 ILCS 5/4), mandated reporters are professionals who may work with children in the course of their professional duties. Mandated reporters are required to report suspected child maltreatment immediately when they have "reasonable cause to believe that a child known to them in their professional or official capacity may be an abused or neglected child" (ANCRA Sec.4). This is done by calling the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) Hotline at 1-800-252-2873 or 1-800-25ABUSE. Programs funded through this grant opportunity must review ANCRA and, where appropriate, have a written protocol for identifying and reporting suspected child maltreatment.
      9. Hiring and Employment Policy: It is the policy of the Department to encourage cultural diversity in the work environment and to promote employment opportunities through its programs. The Department philosophy is that the program workforce should appropriately reflect the populations to be served, with special attention given to hiring individuals indigenous to those communities. Consistent with Department policy, whenever a position becomes available, funded programs are encouraged to consider TANF clients for employment, contingent upon their qualifications in the areas of education and work experience.
