Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $1,562,406)

The Texas JABG Program, as administered by the Office of the Governor's Criminal Justice Division (CJD), promotes structured treatment and accountability services for youth that reduce recidivism by funding juvenile drug courts and other programs designed to hold juvenile offenders accountable. Texas will retain 20% of the award for discretionary projects and 5% for administrative costs. Discretionary funds will be directed towards increasing the capacity of drug courts to provide treatment and accountability options for substance abusing offenders. The remaining 75% will be passed through to eligible units of local government to implement accountability based programs. CJD contracts with the Public Policy Research Institute (PPRI) at Texas A&M University to maintain an online performance reporting environment. PPRI also provides technical assistance to grantees related to Federal performance measures. NCA/NCF
