Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $1,294,000)

The Formula Grants Program is authorized under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 2002. The purpose of this program is to support State and local delinquency prevention and intervention efforts and juvenile justice system improvements. Program areas may include: Planning and administration; State Advisory Group allocation; compliance monitoring; juvenile justice issues for American Indian tribes; prevention of substance abuse by juveniles; prevention of serious and violent crimes by juveniles; prevention of juvenile gang involvement and illegal youth gang activities; prevention of delinquent acts and identification of youth at risk of delinquency; and improvement of juvenile justice system operations, policies, and procedures including establishing a system of graduated sanctions, treatment programs, and aftercare.

Based on an extensive review and analysis of the needs and circumstances of Arizona's youth and the current Arizona juvenile justice system, the Arizona Juvenile Justice Commission has prioritized the following program areas to be addressed with FY 2009 Title II formula grant funding: Delinquency Prevention, Mental Health, DMC, Compliance Monitoring, Native American Programming, and Alternatives to Detention. It is important to note, however, that the sharing of resources and collaboration with other juvenile justice stakeholders and community providers will be key in addressing many of these program areas.
