How Is My Agency’s Eligibility To Receive Title 1 Funds Determined?
In order for an agency to be eligible to generate Title 1 funds, the youth they serve must meet the following criteria:
Be between the ages of 5 to 17;
Live in a locally (TN) operated facility that meets the definition of an institution for neglected youth or delinquent youth:
Local Institution for Neglected Youth: A public or private residential facility, other than a foster home, that is operated for the care of youth who have been committed to the institution or voluntarily placed in the facility under applicable State law, due to abandonment, neglect, or death of their parent(s) or guardian(s). Section 1432(4)(A) Some of these facilities provide drug and/or alcohol treatment and counseling services. Youth at these facilities occasionally have committed misdemeanor offenses. Youth might also attend public school.
Local Institution for Delinquent Youth: A public or private residential facility for the care of youth who have been adjudicated to be delinquent or in need of supervision. Section 1432(4)(B) Such facilities are locked so that the youth served have limited access to the community. Some of these facilities may also provide therapeutic treatment programs.
Live in the residential facility for at least one day during a specified 30-day window. The 30-day window must consist of 30 consecutive days, one of which must fall in October.
Though day-treatment programs do not generate funds from this survey, they are still eligible to be served with Title 1 funds.
The agency will receive either Title 1 Part A (Neglected) funds for residential programs, or Title 1 Part D Subpart 2 (Delinquent) funds to serve the residential or day-treatment youth.
