The Formula Grants Program is authorized under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 1974, as amended. 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.

The Minnesota Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee (JJAC) is the juvenile justice supervisory board appointed by Governor Pawlenty and housed in the Office of Justice Programs in the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. Minnesota's plan for the Formula Grants Program Funding for FY 2010 includes allocations to Planning and Administration, Program Area (PA 23), State Advisory Group Allocation (PA 31), Compliance Monitoring (PA 06), Native American Programs (PA 22) and Delinquency Prevention (PA 09).

The State will continue efforts to support accurate data collection in compliance with the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act's four core requirements via data improvement and education to those juvenile justice agencies which have responsibility for juveniles. Minnesota's JJAC will continue its work with the State legislature by educating lawmakers on the need to clarify protections for the state's juveniles. Minnesota will also continue to fund prevention programs that meet best practice standards and engage and educate other State policymakers on best practices within the juvenile justice continuum.
