The Title II Formula Grants Program supports state and local efforts in planning, establishing, operating, coordinating, and evaluating projects directly or through grants and contracts with public and private agencies for the development of more effective education, training, research, prevention, diversion, treatment, and rehabilitation in the area of juvenile delinquency and programs to improve the juvenile justice system.
With the support of grant funds through the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, administered by the Justice and Community Services (JCS) section of the West Virginia Division of Administrative Services, the State Advisory Group has identified ten program areas to fund: 1) delinquency prevention; 2) school programs; 3) Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC) or racial and ethnic disparities (RED); 4) gender-specific services; 5) protecting juvenile rights; 6) mentoring, counseling, and training programs; 7) mental health services; 8) substance and alcohol abuse services; 9) diversion; and 10) juvenile justice system improvement.
The effectiveness of the program will be measured by the collection of identified OJJDP performance measurement data on an annual basis and on-site programmatic visits.
