The Illinois Juvenile Justice Commission (IJJC) seeks long-term systems improvement through policy and programmatic development at state, local, and non-governmental organization levels. Applicants will be selected based upon their capacity and willingness to collaborate and partner with IJJC and the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice JDJJ to develop innovate and effective youth reentry strategies, identify the policy implications of the projects, provide insight and data supporting these policy implications and communicate policy implications to state and local partners, leading to long-term systemic changes in Illinois juvenile aftercare.

To accomplish these systems improvement goals, IJJC is investing in Juvenile Re-Entry projects with the goal of demonstrating effective strategies for comprehensive aftercare services.

Selected grantees will engage in:

  • Development and implementation of innovative community-based strategies which result in reduced re-incarceration, reduced rates of re-arrests, increased youth independent functioning, and enhanced educational achievement and vocational success.
  • Collaborative program development and implementation with partner agencies, including IJJC, DJJ and other state and local partners.
  • Development, with IJJC and DJJ, of referral processes and case management strategies.
  • Measurement of immediate, intermediate, and long-term outcomes, with a focus on capacity to gather and evaluate data.
