Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $600,341)

Nebraska has not participated in the Title II Part B Formula Grant Program since FY 2017. Nebraska is seeking to come back into participation with the program with this FY 2023 request. Nebraska will be using the Title II award to put processes, policies and procedures into place to return to compliance with the Act. The SAG and system stakeholders will collaborate on the primary activities, expected outcomes, and milestones. Year 1 milestones include hiring of a Juvenile Justice Specialist, Compliance Monitor, and Racial and Ethnic Disparities (R/ED) Coordinator, along with completing respective trainings for those positions. These staff will develop the State Compliance Monitoring Manual (CMM), the Compliance Monitoring Universe, and Compliance Data Collection Plan for each of the core requirements. The SAG will work with the Governor’s Office to fill any vacancies on the SAG and troubleshoot issues with recruiting and maintaining young adult members appointed before the age of 28. During year two, the Compliance Monitor will begin putting policies and processes into place to prepare the facilities for inspection in year 3. The Training Policy Certification will also be completed. The Crime Commission, SAG and R/ED Coordinator will begin outlining the R/ED plan, including data collection and determining where Nebraska has gaps in the data. Collaboration will begin to determine what relationships, MOUS, and data sharing agreements are necessary to begin collecting and reporting during year 3. In year three, Nebraska plans to have all processes in place to begin compliance data collection and facility inspections in order to submit compliance data, along with the required Compliance Monitoring Data Certification and the Compliance Plans and Resources Certification. An R/ED plan will also be submitted. A policy will be developed to require individuals who work with juveniles and adult inmates to have training and certification to work with juveniles so that the Training Certification form can be completed. Remaining funds will be used to pass through subawards in the following program areas: delinquency prevention, positive youth development, compliance monitoring, Tribal programs, and R/ED.
