The JABG Program for the State of Washington is administered by the Washington Department of Social and Health Services, Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration (JRA). As required, Washington retains 25% of JABG funds at the state level and passes through 75% to counties, cities, and one Native American Tribe. In the community, JABG funds are used for a wide variety of programs, including: evidenced based programs, drug courts, restorative justice, accountability based programs, prosecutors, probation officers, technology, detention reform, and risk assessment. A majority of the State retained portion of the JABG funds will support a client activity tracking system by establishing electronic data sharing relationships with both providers and receivers of juvenile offender data.
