Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $425,765)

The Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth (TCCY) administers the state's JABG funds and passes through the required 75% of the federal award to units of local government. Pass-through funds are used to provide direct and indirect services to youth who have been before the juvenile court. Pass-through funds provide a Juvenile Court Referee to help reduce the waiting time to review cases. Funds are also used for drug testing, counseling, prosecution of violent offenders, conflict resolution, education, and psychological testing for juveniles who have been before the Juvenile Court. State-allocated funds are used to provide training for youth to change behaviors and become leaders in their communities once released. Funds are also used for training juvenile court personnel, for Drug Courts and intensive probation programs for juveniles. TCCY will measure the progress of the JABG sub-grant programs through the use of the Data Collection and Technical Assistance Tool (DCTAT), quarterly progress reports, and annual monitoring. NCA/NCF
