Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $1,069,869)

The Vision 21: Linking Systems of Care for Children and Youth State Demonstration Project seeks to address the enduring issue of child and youth victimization by bringing together all of the relevant systems and professionals to establish, pilot test, and then carry out a coordinated approach. The goal of this coordinated approach is to ensure that every child and youth who interfaces with these systems—e.g., child welfare, juvenile justice, mental health, education—is assessed for victimization; provided timely and comprehensive services to fully address their needs; and that practices and policies are established to sustain this approach long term.

This program is being carried out over the course of two phases—Phase I Planning and Phase II Implementation. With this supplemental award, the Montana Board of Crime Control will have the additional period of time necessary to undertake a wide-reaching statewide program and to successfully demonstrate the outcomes of this program, as required by the Government Performance and Results Act. Specially, the Montana Board of Crime Control will finalize the implementation stage of the demonstration project and bring the work to completion.
