Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $100,000)

The Juvenile Accountability Incentive Block Grants (JAIBG) program was authorized by Congress in the Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1998. Public Law 107 273 renamed the program to Juvenile Accountability Block Grants (JABG). The purpose of the JABG program is to provide funds to state and local governments to develop programs to promote greater accountability in the juvenile justice system. The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act requires that the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention pass funds for delinquency prevention and juvenile justice system improvement to tribes. The 562 federally recognized Indian tribes are eligible to receive funds under the Act, provided they have law enforcement functions. For those that are eligible, the Act specifies that they receive a proportion of the state funds equivalent to the proportion of juveniles under 18 in the state that are in areas served by the tribe. The Native American Pass Through (NAPT, formerly called the Tribal Youth Pass Through or TYPT) program was created to calculate these proportions.

Under this award, JRSA will:
1) Obtain, extract, and merge crime and expenditure data already collected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Census Bureau as necessary for the JABG formula calculations.
2) Obtain state administrator approval to supplement these data with available state data, where necessary to provide a complete data file.
3) Calculate JABG allocations for each locality within a state, based on the updated formula requirements and the data provided above.
4) Disseminate JABG data and documentation via the JRSA JABG Technical Assistance Center Web site.
5) Obtain, extract, and merge population data already collected by the Census Bureau, and/or the Bureau of Indian Affairs as necessary for the NAPT formula calculations.
6) Verify eligibility of each tribe.
7) Calculate NAPT allocations for each locality within a state, based on the updated formula requirements and the data provided above.
8) Disseminate NAPT data and documentation via the Native American Pass Through Technical Support Center Web site.
9) Provide technical assistance as needed; respond to questions from states regarding how new legislation has impacted the JABG and NAPT award allocations, the data sources, and the formula used to generate allocation amounts.

JRSA will also be responsible for managing the project, assuring that all tasks are completed on time and in the manner specified in the proposal.
