The Aquaculture Research program is to support the development of an environmentally and economically sustainable aquaculture industry in the U.S. and generate new science-based information and innovation to address industry constraints.

The Aquaculture Research program for FY 2014 will fund projects that directly address major constraints to the U.S. aquaculture industry and focus on one or more of the following program priorities: (1) Genetics of commercial aquaculture species. (2) Critical disease issues impacting aquaculture species. (3) Design of environmentally and economically sustainable aquaculture production systems. (4) Economic research for increasing aquaculture profitability.

3. Smart on Juvenile Justice: A Comprehensive Strategy to Juvenile Justice Reform
OJJDP-2014-3901

Synopsis:
Many states have recently embraced or are in the process of pursuing comprehensive juvenile justice reforms to protect public safety, hold offenders accountable, improve youth outcomes, and reduce taxpayer burdens associated with out-of-home placement. In addition to improving both public safety and outcomes for youth, states are seeking ways that these reforms can be self-financing through a redistribution of spending from more expensive facility costs to early intervention, diversion, and community-based programs. To achieve their potential, these reforms must be implemented properly. OJJDP will support states and localities implementing juvenile justice reform by providing national leadership; policy guidance; training and technical assistance on a range of juvenile justice issues, including but not limited to eliminating racial and ethnical disparities; implementation of evidence-based assessment tools; enhancement of the adjudicatory hearing process to support prosecutors, probation officers, defense attorneys, and judges; use of out-of-home placement when deemed appropriate; enhancing standards for out of home placement; and comprehensive reentry/aftercare models. The initiative is a public-private partnership between OJJDP, the Pew Charitable Trusts, the training and technical assistance provider to be selected, and participating states. This project will cover a broad range of activities and services to facilitate the effective implementation of state reforms on a local level, with the overall goal of sustained change and promotion of a developmentally appropriate approach to juvenile justice nationally.
