Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $2,076,603)

The Corrections Standards Authority (CSA) administers the Juvenile Accountability Block Grant (JABG) Program at the state level for California. Seventy-five percent of the state's total allocation is passed through to thirty-six local units of government in the form of a direct allocation as determined by Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). The remaining twenty-five percent is retained by the state and used at the state's discretion with direction from the State Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (SACJJDP). Entities funded through CSA with JABG dollars are required to direct their JABG funds toward one or more of seventeen federally determined program purpose areas. Based on an assessment of the state's needs and gaps in service, California's SACJJDP has further refined criteria for the seventeen program purpose areas by aligning them with a priority focus on evidence-based practices, disproportionate minority contact, and strategies to promote positive outcomes for youth. All sub grantees submit quarterly progress reports to CSA utilizing the federal performance matrix to report data on the required performance measures for both short term and intermediate outcomes.
