The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) is pleased to invite applicants from state and tribal dependency court(s) to apply to participate in the Implementation Site Project.
The NCJFCJ, with funding from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), has been partnering with courts across the country since 1992 to improve outcomes for abused and neglected children and their families. The NCJFCJ will be selecting six (6) sites to participate in the project. There is no direct funding available to participating sites. However, the six sites that are selected will receive training, technical assistance, and support from NCJFCJ staff. The six courts will join 21 other state and tribal jurisdictions that are currently part of the project.
The six (6) selected implementation sites will receive individualized assessments, training, and technical assistance as they seek to implement the principles and recommendations set forth in the Enhanced Resource Guidelines and work toward improving practices and outcomes. As part of this effort, the new Implementation Sites will be expected to be “laboratories for change” as they will be participating in an ongoing assessment of their performance and they will be expected to share their results with the NCJFCJ and other sites in order to inform and sustain a larger system improvement effort.
