    The goal of this program is to incentivize states to implement reforms to reduce their use of outof-home placement. The objectives are to: ¢ Implement culturally relevant, trauma-informed approaches that address race and gender, and focus on outcomes and root causes. ¢ Use validated risk and needs assessment instruments to more effectively determine whether out-of-home placement is the appropriate and necessary response to delinquent/criminal incidents. ¢ Develop a continuum of community-based alternatives to detention and placement in jurisdictions that have identified a need through a comprehensive resource inventory. Typical services include, but are not limited to: o Education and tutorial services. o Service learning programs. o Substance use education and counseling. o Job skills training. o Mental health treatment. o Crisis intervention. o Family counseling, parenting skills development, and supports for rebuilding family relationships. Develop and implement policies and procedures that will reduce the use of out-of-home placement. For example, minimizing the use of out-of-home placement as a sanction for technical violations of probation or parole, eliminating the use of mandatory sentencing guidelines, or establishing protocols/programs that reduce the racial and ethnic OJJDP-2017-10980 7 disparities in the system that result in overrepresentation of minorities in secure placement. ¢ Develop and implement reform strategies, such as realignment and/or reinvestment, to reduce the use of out-of-home placement. 11 Deliverables under this program will include developing and implementing strategic plans that will address reducing the use of out-of-home placement. The plans should be based on a thorough assessment of the use of secure confinement and a community resource inventory with identifiable reductions over a 3-year project period.
