Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $100,000)

The Congressionally Selected Awards Program, authorized by the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 (Pub. L. 111-8), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects selected by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-8, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 09 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY09 Omnibus Appropriations Act.

Inner Harbour, Inc. will use the grant funds to increase the number of "at-risk" and delinquent youth receiving neuropsychiatric services within the Inner Harbour programs. By adding additional personnel and covering the salaries of current personnel, they will continue specialized services and add additional positions to serve even more "at-risk" youth. The population to be served inculdes "at-risk" and delinquent youth, six to eighteen years of age, with impairment in behavioral, cognitive, emotional, familial, and/or social functioning. Funds will be expended for salary and benefits for project professional staff.
