Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $136,458)

The Vermont Department for Children and Families bears over 90% of the primary financial burden for the administration of juvenile justice within the state at well over the 25% requirement. Vermont retains 100% of JABG funds with no pass-through amount to units of local government to fund the following state level initiatives.
Purpose Area 10: Establishing and maintaining interagency information sharing programs that enable the juvenile and criminal justice systems, schools, and social services agencies to make more informed decisions regarding the early identification, control, supervision and treatment of juveniles who repeatedly commit serious delinquent or criminal acts. Purpose Area 12: Establishing and maintaining programs to conduct risk and needs assessments that facilitate effective early intervention and the provision of comprehensive services, including mental health screening and treatment and substance abuse testing and treatment, to juvenile offenders. Purpose Area 14: Establishing and maintaining restorative justice programs. All JABG sub-grantees collect, analyze, and report data on grant funded activities quarterly. Sub-grantees track output and outcome measures to monitor the quality and impact of programming. The Vermont Department for Children and Families Youth Justice Unit works closely with the Vermont Juvenile Justice Commission to monitor trends and measure progress towards JABG program goals.
