Council District(s)

Relationship To Strategic Plan:
Goal I: Safe and Secure Community

Executive Summary:
The City has been awarded grant funding for fiscal year 2022-2023 for the Fayetteville-Cumberland County Juvenile Restitution Program. Council is asked to adopt Special Revenue Fund Project Ordinance 2023-6 to accept the grant funding and appropriate $82,494 needed for personnel and operating costs for fiscal year 2022-2023. The funding sources for this program include a $50,592 grant awarded by the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, a local match of $15,951 from Cumberland County, and the City's local match of $15,951.

The Fayetteville-Cumberland County Juvenile Restitution Program focuses on making juvenile offenders, typically between the ages of 11 and 17, accountable to the community and/or victim(s) through community service work. Youth are referred to the program to complete court-ordered community service and/or restitution requirements.

The program provides meaningful work opportunities for juveniles to teach them accountability and to accept responsibility for their actions. In addition, the program focuses on changing the juvenile's attitude and negative behavior through positive reinforcement and life experiences. It is the goal of the program to decrease future criminal misbehavior by those served.

The Fayetteville Police Department has been managing the JCPC Juvenile Restitution Program. This award will allow for the continued management of the program.

The grant performance period expires June 30, 2023.
