Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $173,413)

The Hawaii Office of Youth Services (OYS) will pass through 75 percent of its JABG award to the four counties comprising the Hawaiian Islands. The purpose areas that will be utilized at the state level and the four counties are as follows: Purpose Area 1 - Graduated Sanctions: counties of Hawaii, Kauai, Oahu, and Maui; and Purpose Area 2 - Accountability-Based Programs: state and/or county level. Purpose Area 1 will be coordinated and implemented by each of the four counties in conformance to their respective Juvenile Crime Enforcement Coalition (JCEC) Plans. State activities will focus on accountability-based programs designed to reduce recidivism among juveniles. The goals are to provide sanctions that are least restrictive that correspond to the offense committed as well as imposing immediate consequences with regards to accountability-based programs. Progress will be measured using the JABG Performance Measurement System. Quarterly reports from each sub-grantee will be required as a means to measure progress throughout the duration of the projects. Any discrepancies or deficiencies in the project would warrant discussions with sub-grantees either by telephone or on-site monitoring visits. Corrective measures will be applied wherever appropriate. The OYS will be reporting JABG performance measures as required by OJJDP's DCTAT and the GMS. NCA/NCF
