As part of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's Center for Coordinated Assistance to States (CCAS), the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform (CJJR) at Georgetown University's McCourt School of Public Policy has issued a Request for Applications (RFA) from jurisdictions seeking to engage in system improvement efforts through the Multi-System Collaboration Training and Technical Assistance Program (MSC-TTA).

The program is designed to support jurisdictions that are interested in developing a sound infrastructure to better serve at-risk or multi-system youth and their families. CJJR will provide distance learning Training and Technical Assistance at no cost to a cohort of up to 6 jurisdictions to help them identify gaps in policy and practice, enhance information sharing capacities, explore how key decision points impact the trajectory of the youth currently being served, and support culture change through leadership development.

Through this program, jurisdictions will collaborate with CCAS staff and other program participants to develop individualized strategic plans that address specific issues of their choosing related to at-risk or multi-system youth.​

To provide more information about the program, CJJR will be hosting an MSC-TTA application informational call on August 10, 2015 at 2:30 pm EST. This call is not required of potential applicants but is highly recommended. The dial-in number for the call is 1-866-910-4857, passcode: 863624#. Applications are due September 11, 2015.
