Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $600,000)

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 Designated State Agency responsible for the implementation of the Title II-B Formula Grants Program for the State of North Dakota is the Department of Corrections (DOC), Division of Juvenile Services (DJS). DOC/DJS plans to utilize its FY 2010 allocation to support the following Program Areas: #23 (Planning and Administration); #31 (State Advisory Group); #08 (Deinstitutionalization of Status Offenders); #22 (American Indian Programs); and #17 (Jail Removal).

The State will support the administration of Formula Grant activities with a contract to the North Dakota Association of Counties (NDACo) to employ a full-time juvenile justice specialist. A major component of the application includes support for a statewide attendant care/holdover network that minimizes the potential for status offenders being held securely. In addition, funds will support a North Dakota Indian Youth Leadership Academy.
