Development Services Group, Inc. (DSG), will continue and expand the training and technical assistance (T&TA) that it has been providing State Advisory Groups (SAGs), under OJJDP's direction, so that SAGs can better fulfill their responsibilities under the JJDPA to ensure compliance with the Core Requirements, and protect and serve youth and communities.

Goals: Deliver targeted, highquality, state-of-the-art T&TA; and continue building and refining an OJJDP-approved T&TA support system that is comprehensive, responsive, flexible, appropriately innovative, and cost effective.

Objectives: Increase the ability of the SAGs to accomplish their mandate, improve the States' juvenile justice programs, and promote juvenile justice systems improvement.

Activities: New activities will include a national SAG steering committee to enhance information and resource sharing; special training and monthly calls for youth members; Webinars, a database of SAG best practices, and SAG trackers; SAG service calls to each state; T&TA for SAGs with imilar needs; Core Requirements; T&TA "mobilization teams"; and T&TA on systems integration and systems change. DSG will continue refining the core SAG Trainings, the Web site, and the TA Tracker.

Measures: To assess progress, DSG will use 10 output measures (e.g., number of trainings) and five outcome measures (e.g., increased knowledge, improved SAG performance). CA/NCF

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's (OJJDP) State Relations and Assistance Division Grants were established to provide grants, cooperative agreements, and other assistance to organizations. These awards are authorized under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 1974, as amended.

These funds will be used to support the continued training and technical assistance services to State Advisory Groups (SAGs) throughout the country and U.S. territories. The training and technical assistance that SAG members receive serves two broad purposes. It enables them to: (1) better understand the juvenile justice system in their respective states or territories and (2) become more familiar with all programs and facilities serving youth. Trained SAG members will be better able to effectively carry out their roles and responsibilities to ensure and enhance an effective and responsive juvenile justice system within their jurisdiction.
