Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $501,475)

The Department of Criminal Justice Services administers the JABG funds for the State of Virginia. The State is responsible for approximately 88% of all funding for the juvenile justice system. Units of local government provide the remaining 12%. Based on this data, OJJDP approved Virginia's request for a waiver of the program's pass-through requirement allowing the State to retain 88% of all JABG funds. The priority areas identified by Virginia's Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice help govern the use of remaining JABG funds. They include: reducing disproportionality among minority youth; increasing family and community involvement; Behavioral health (mental health/substance abuse) and serving youth in their home communities. Activities will be implemented according to the selected purpose area(s). To ensure that identified goals and objectives are achieved, the Grant Monitor will monitor progress through monitoring tools to include site visits, quarterly progress reports and performance measures reports.
