The JCPC annually reviews the needs of juveniles in the County who are at risk of delinquency and/or who have been adjudicated by the court. Simultaneously, the Council surveys the resources available to address those needs, and prioritizes community risk factors for youth for families, and for the community, and determines the services needed to address those problem areas.
The grant cycle begins when the Council advertises the availability of funding and solicits requests from service providers in a Request for Proposals (RFP). Thereafter, agencies submit applications for the specific need to be addressed and make presentations to the Council at a scheduled JCPC meeting. After hearing all presentations, the Council devises its funding recommendations, which it then submits to the Board of County Commissioners for their consideration during budget deliberations, with a determination made in the adopted budget by the end of June of the prior fiscal year.
The JCPC Request for Proposals for Fiscal Year 2015-16 will be advertised beginning December 15 and will close on January 30th at 5 p.m. The electronic application in NC Allies will be available the first week in January. Please see the RFP document below for detailed application information.
