The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) is making up to $837,156.00 in FY19 Federal Title II funding available for calendar year 2020 programs. Applications for the FY19 Federal Title II Funds are due by Monday, November 25th 2019. Only Indiana state agencies and units of local government are eligible to apply for Title II program funds from ICJI.

Title II Grants

The Title II Formula Grant program requires each state to develop a Three-Year Plan that identifies goals for the juvenile justice system and programmatic priorities to be supported by sub-grants. Title II sub-grant funding is competitive in nature. Therefore, ICJI will only give consideration to applications that fall under one of the following purpose areas AND have the greatest impact on Hoosier youth.

Indiana has identified the following program/priority areas for funding:

  1. Disproportionate Minority Contact
  2. Diversion Programs
  3. Gender Specific Programs
  4. Mental Health Services for Youth in Custody
  5. Mentoring, Counseling, and Training Programs
  6. Rural Area Juvenile Programs
  1. Youth Substance Abuse

Applicants must select only one of the following purpose area per application. Applicants may submit multiple applications if they wish to operate multiple programs and/or address multiple purpose areas.

More information can be found in the request for proposals (RFP) at https://www.in.gov/cji/.

Questions about the RFP should be referred to ICJI program manager Adam Winkler at AdWinkler@cji.IN.gov.

IntelliGrants

To access the online application, the state or local government applicants must be registered in IntelliGrants, ICJI’s grants-management system, at https://intelligrants.in.gov/Registration2.aspx. Organizations that have already registered in IntelliGrants for another ICJI grant may add users for the Title II grant applications. For example, multiple departments within the same city, town or county government may need to work through one IntelliGrants administrator.

ICJI recommends that sub grantees review IntelliGrants material before registering and logging in for the first time. Use the password IndianaCJI1 to register and view the webinar recording at https://indianaenhanced.webex.com/indianaenhanced/lsr.php?RCID=f840ffe2b02ce356fb6f0322bf6960a3.

Everyone who signs an ICJI grant agreement(s) must learn how to make electronic signatures in IntelliGrants. When an organization registers a new user, it should suggest a user role in the notes section. The user types are explained on page 6 of the sub grantee User Manual at www.in.gov/cji/files/IntelliGrants_User_Manual.pdf.

Once an organization’s users are registered and approved, it will be ready to submit applications for ICJI funding availabilities. Questions beyond what the training webinar recording and user manual provide should be referred to CJIHelpdesk@cji.in.gov.
