Hoeven Announces More Than $400,000 Grant to North Dakota Department of Corrections

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, who serves on the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has awarded $400,279 to the North Dakota Department of Corrections’ (NDDOC) Division of Juvenile Services. The NDDOC will use the funds to support Attendant Care Programs in communities throughout North Dakota. The Attendant Care Program provides supervision of about 700 youth annually and provides services to help reduce the number of youth in the juvenile justice or child welfare systems. The funds are made available through the DOJ’s Title II Formula Grants Program.

“Today’s DOJ funds will help support communities throughout our state provide guidance and supervision for youth in welfare or criminal justice programs to help them get their lives on track and stay out of trouble,” Hoeven said. “In addition, these funds will support assessment, diversion and counseling services.”
